* Each spring MET organizes a series of workshops in Barcelona. Occasionally, workshops may be held in other cities at the invitation of other nonprofit associations.
MET aims to offer workshops that address the practical concerns of those who need to provide high-quality editing, translation, and related communication services.
The workshops have a light theoretical framework and focus on approaches that help us do our jobs both better and more confidently—hence efficiently.
