The Fusionistas                           





Are you working as an in-house translator and want to discuss the ups and downs of the profession with people who can relate to your experience?


Are you a freelance translator and need to get out of the house?


\Would you like to expand your social and professional network?


If yes, then this section is for you!


As you’ve probably guessed, Fusionistas is a humorous take on the term fashionistas. Instead of hunting down clothes and accessories, Fusionistas meet at trendy bars and restaurants where they can talk shop, make new business contacts, get in touch with former classmates, and simply have fun.


Since we formed the Fusionistas network in November 2006, it has grown rapidly and now has over 200 members who have found office mates, shared contracts and, most importantly, enjoyed getting to know one another.


Fusionistas have their say!


We’ve noticed that many Fusionistas love to write but, like us, they don’t have enough time or material to run their own blog.


That’s why we’ve created Parole de Fusionistas, a multi-author blog that covers a wide range of topics, including linguistic tidbits, travel stories, restaurant reviews . . .


The blog is a fun, creative outlet and an opportunity for members to share useful information and entertaining anecdotes.


If you already have your own blog and want to submit an existing article, we’d be happy to post it and boost your traffic. For those of you who don’t have a blog, but would like to share your faves and hates, vacation or travel projects, new maple fudge recipe, latest music discoveries, new favourite restaurant, pastimes and so on, this forum is for you! Your post doesn’t have to be long or an opinion piece; it can simply be a couple of paragraphs with the views and news you want to share. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
