Join Indira Guzman of the Community Language Cooperative, based in Colorado, United States, for an hour-long session exploring how they started their co-operative, their operational model, the services they offer, and the benefits of being a co-operative in the translator and interpreter industry.

Are you interested in finding out about translators and interpreters co-operatives? How they offer benefits to self-employed practitioners? How they are different from private agencies? And how you might set one up with others in the industry?

This event is part of a series to support translators and interpreters in the Preston City Region to explore the co-operative model.
