4 Things to do Before, During and After ATA 58 in Washington D.C.

Not only can I not quite believe we are nearing the end of October already, but ATA 58 is also fast approaching. With under a week to go until over 1800 translation and interpretation professionals walk through the doors in Washington D.C., we’ve put together a few suggestions of things to do whilst you’re attending ATA 58.

1. Visit some iconic landmarks

Washington D.C. is home to some of the most recognizable buildings, monuments and memorials in the world. Firstly, I can’t mention Washington D.C. without bringing up the White House. So why not take a stroll down Pennsylvania Avenue to get a glimpse of the home which has housed some of the most iconic Presidents of the United States of America.

Other landmarks I recommend visiting include:

  • Lincoln Memorial
  • U.S Capitol Building
  • Washington Monument.

2. Unwind at the Tregaron Conservancy

Described as ‘an oasis of trails and woodlands’, the Tregaron Conservancy is perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors and want to relax with nature. It is a 10-minute drive from the Hilton Washington D.C. where ATA 58 is taking place and is the ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Washington D.C.

The Tregaron Conservancy is free to enter but donations are welcome.

3. Dance the night away at the ATA Conference Dance Party

On Saturday evening it is time to let your hair down and put on your dancing shoes, as the ATA 58 Conference Dance Party is taking place. The music has been described as a mix of Brazilian, salsa, disco, pop, funk and global dance music. So there really is something for everyone…

The Conference Dancy Party takes place on Saturday from 9pm – Midnight and is open to 3-day and Saturday attendees.

4. Visit the SDL booth for SDL Trados Studio support and demos

Visit us at booth 1, 2, 3, 4, 21, 22, 23, 24 where we will be running exclusive demos of our translation software. You will also be able to visit our Tool Support station where Paul Filkin will be on hand to offer expert advice and support for all of your SDL Trados Studio needs.

We will also be giving away a pamper bag of goodies for you to take home. All you need to do is download the My SDL Trados app or the SDL Trados Studio 2017 Free Trial and show us proof of your download – simple.
