Janis Shea presents “Translation 101: Best Practices in Writing for Translation”
Translation is an arcane discipline, where state-of-the-art technology comes together with a very human process. Translation done well can help get products to market faster with accurate content and without breaking the bank.

Location and Parking
There is another DoubleTree hotel nearby, so it’s easy to accidentally go to the wrong location if you do a search for “DoubleTree” on your phone, instead of searching for the exact address!
The DoubleTree Club offers complimentary valet parking. If you prefer to self-park, tell the valet that you’re at the hotel for an OCSTC meeting, and ask if you can park yourself.
