Registration for SAM 2016 Closing Soon!

Feb 01, 2016

The Société Française des Traducteurs (SFT) is pleased to announce that registration for the 11th edition of its Medical English Seminar (SAM) is open.

The Medical English Seminar (SAM) is the go-to event for professional French/English medical translators of all levels, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro. It is organized by the French Translators Association (SFT) and held every other year at the Faculté de Médecine Lyon Est, in beautiful Lyon, France. This year’s edition will be held from March 14-18, 2016.

SAM is a fantastic and unique opportunity to participate in sessions presented by renowned medical and scientific specialists, test your translation skills against those of your peers, and network with colleagues from around the world.

In addition to the many presentations and translation workshops on hand, this year’s edition features an apéritif d’accueil, a gastronomic dinner at Restaurant Vatel and – in an exciting innovation – a translation slam.
