How do I find my friends and colleagues on The Open Mic?

The Open Mic has a very strong emphasis on the community.

We’re trying to build a place where everyone is welcome.

No matter who you are: a newbie, a seasoned translator or even a translation agency.

There is room for everyone on The Open Mic.

This is the first translation community that invites everyone to collaborate and work together on shaping the future of our profession.

Sounds ambitious and unrealistic?

Well, maybe it is. But we want to give it a shot.

And we invite you to be a part of it.
