“I’m a Kent State translation program alum. I celebrated 10 years in translation last year. That’s when I decided it was high time to increase my participation in professional associations. While no longer a Colorado resident at that time, I remembered having heard great things about the CTA. I have not been disappointed!”

The Colorado Translators Association has gained a new member who may be known to many in the translation industry: Karen Tkaczyk, a French into English technical translator, recently moved to beautiful Colorado and joined our association. It was my pleasure having Karen over for lunch and having the chance to discuss our profession with such a dedicated and thorough professional. Also a great cook, she was nice enough to share her Poires pochées au vin rouge (Red Wine-Poached Pears) recipe with me!
