Let´s rub minds on the workings of our noble profession.
I wish to let you know that this page is designed for all NITI members to air their views about any topic that has to do with translation and interpretation in Nigeria and, indeed, in the West African subregion. Just use the contact form at this site to send in your contribution and your blog will appear here in a few minutes or hours, depending on a few factors. Please make your contribution not too long, say, two A4 pages maximum. Members also have the right to react to other people´s contribution. So dear colleagues, let´s keep our website buzzing starting from now. It´s been quiet for too long.
The first salvo I have to fire is to say how dissapointed I am at the nonchalant attitude of members in responding to NITI requests, which are aimed at making us all proud. We announced after the 8th NITI Congress and Workshop that all those who presented papers at both the 7th Congress in Lagos and the 8th Congress in Abuja should please send in their papers in soft form, that is, typewritten and sent by e-mail. The deadline given expired, we gave more time and that one expired too; and how many people of all NITI responded? Only four. That´s right! Only four members responded after more that two months of notice. Well, like we mentioned in the notices, we are now going to press,and we are publishing only what we have. if any member does not find his or her paper in the publication, blame the paper presenters´devil.
I want to see NITI people writing beautiful things that will appear on this page on a daily basis. Have your say, dear colleagues. I can´t wait to receive your writeup. Thank you.
