Supertext Freelancer Convention 2021

One game, four super webinars and 100 great discussions: the Freelancer Convention 2021 in a nutshell

Last Friday, we streamed our second digital Freelancer Convention around the world. Super freelancers from 20 countries tuned in, took part in the language quiz and met our team at our virtual drinks reception. Our speakers were also dotted around the globe – in Berlin, Zurich, Los Angeles and Brussels.

The Supertext Freelancer Convention was once again held online this year. A range of perspectives from the language industry, a whole lot of fun and a relaxed get-together were this year’s highlights. Speakers included one of our super freelancers, Adrian Probst, who gave attendees an insight into his exciting work, alongside Technology Solution Manager Patricia Kamer, Language Manager Fiona Money and our founder Rinaldo Dieziger.
