Lincolnshire Society

The inaugural meeting of the Lincolnshire Society was held in June 1998. Membership of the Society is free and CIOL members as well as non-members are very welcome at all our events. Information about our events is available by email from Society Secretary Brigitte Peach MCIL, in The Linguist and on the events page of this website.

The aim of the Lincolnshire Society is to be a local meeting point for people to find out more about the CIOL and what it has to offer; to be a contact point for information and professional networking, and to provide varied presentations and events during the year. These events aim to involve members working in all areas of languages. Committee members have also in the past given presentations to local business people about the correct use of translators and interpreters.

We hold several events each year, plus an Annual General Meeting in Lincoln. In the past, events have been held on subjects such as MA courses in translation and interpreting studies, continuous professional development, designing a website, effective use of the internet by linguists, translation software, the new A/AS level syllabus in languages, the latest changes in Public Service Interpreting, marketing for freelance translators and setting up as a freelance interpreter or translator. We also organise social and networking events.
