Successful trade fair presence: Expolingua 2023 in Berlin

Our department's delegation recently concluded two eventful days at the trade fair in Berlin-Mitte.  Despite the considerable travel and preparation efforts, the experience proved to be highly rewarding. Rainer Egler, Fadia Sauerwein, and student assistant Elena Schmidt engaged in numerous discussions with a diverse international audience. This included students, active and former translators, language enthusiasts, and university lecturers from around the globe. The topics covered ranged from advice and academic exchange to information and promotion of our interdisciplinary and modern degree programs. Both lecture slots drew a substantial crowd, with over 50 attendees in each session, leaving a great impression. This was clearly reflected from the follow-up questions and discussions.

To wrap up: a small piece of Saarland and a large piece of our department was carried out  into the world. Let's hope it bears fruit!
Many thanks to all those involved!
