The Polish Association of Language Service Providers (POLOT) became a partner of the European Language Industry Association (ELIA) (http://elia-association.org/). This is a non-profit organisation, which, like POLOT, aims at supporting the development of companies working in the translation industry. Over the 14+ years of its existence, ELIA has organised several dozen conferences and meetings for its 230+ members. Our collaboration provides mutual support and promotion of operations. In addition, POLOT members can take advantage of reduced registration fees for events organised by ELIA.
