Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
Eriksen Translations Inc. (http://www.eriksen.com) will be presenting and exhibiting at two upcoming international museum conferences, Museums and the Web 2014 and the American Alliance of Museums 2014 Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo. Eriksen works with many of the premier museums around the country, helping them make exhibition materials accessible to their domestic and international visitors. We are pleased to have these opportunities to support our clients and the museum community.
Museums and the Web is an annual conference featuring advanced research and exemplary applications of digital practice for cultural, natural, and scientific heritage. Eriksen will be exhibiting at this year’s conference, held April 2-5 in Baltimore, Maryland, and presenting in program sessions.
On Friday, April 4, from 9:00-10:30 am, Matt Heenan, Eriksen’s Director of Client Services, will serve as a panelist on the conference’s Social Media Clinic. Attendees are encouraged to bring social media projects, challenges, and ideas to the panel where they will learn how to use social media to measure a museum’s value to its patrons, and hear how museums around the world are generating new audiences and conversations. Chaired by Neal Stimler, Associate Digital Asset Specialist at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, panelists include Sarah Bailey Hogarty, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and Dana Allen-Greil, National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.
Matt will also present an exhibitor’s briefing, “Beyond English – Best Practices for Translation and Localization” on Saturday, April 5 from 9:00-10:00 am. In his presentation, he will discuss the ways in which museums can use translation and localization to expand their reach and deepen engagement by communicating with international visitors and local non-English speaking communities in their own language.
The American Alliance of Museums’ 2014 Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo, held May 18-21 in Seattle, Washington, will feature the topic, “The Innovative Edge.” On May 20, from 1:45-3:00pm, Matt will be a panelist presenting on the topic “Tweeting Toward Innovative #ProfDev.” The session will help museum professionals cultivate their personal brands on Twitter and discuss best practices for online networking. Matt’s co-panelists include Miriam Bader, Lower East Side Tenement Museum, Rachel Ropeik, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Kinneret Kohn, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, and Rebecca Mir, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
