In 2008 over 140 translators gathered in Boulder, Colorado USA, for three days of provocative dialogue among peers regarding such topics as excellence in translation; language issues and dilemmas; personal projects and research; translation resources and technology; training, and mentorship. There was additional discussion and focus on safeguarding the future of translation of Tibetan texts to English in the West. The Conference was a deeply meaningful and joyful event.
