About us

Mediterranean Editors and Translators (MET) is a volunteer-run association for editors, translators and other language professionals who have English as a primary working language.

We provide members with opportunities to exchange promising practices, subject knowledge and relevant research through peer-led training and networking at our workshops, online events and annual conference.

Annual conference

Our flagship event is our annual meeting, or METM (pronounced /ˈmetəm/). METMs offer high-quality, peer-reviewed content across two and a half days packed with workshops, presentations, keynote talks and networking opportunities.

We gather in a Mediterranean city every September or October, and we encourage members and non-members alike to answer our call for proposals early in the year.

Our 19th annual conference will be held in Mantua, Italy, on 12-14 October 2023.


MET organizes a series of in-person and online workshops between February and September. Sessions typically last three hours and look at one area in depth or a combination of two complementary topics.

We cover all aspects of continuing professional development for language professionals working with English, including translation and editing techniques, field-specific content, grammar and software.
