Signal is a 1-day online festival by language professionals,
for language professionals.

Hosted by Language Professionals’ Networking Event, a non-profit, interdisciplinary monthly social gathering, Signal is a celebration of the 3rd year anniversary of LPNE.

Since 2018, we’ve organised a networking event, every single month. And like any birthday worth its salt, we’d like to celebrate in style.

We thought we would dedicate a whole day to celebrate not only this special occasion but also the wonderfully colourful industry that we’re in as language professionals.

About the Host

Language Professionals’ Networking Event is an independent monthly social gathering. What started out as a London-based initiative back in the summer of 2018, LPNE has now organically grown into an online community of 600+ language professionals from all over the world. 

We are a bunch of linguists who missed a platform where we could meet every once in a while to discuss all things languages and career in a supportive, informal environment.

The purpose of our monthly interdisciplinary meetings is to provide an informal platform where all sorts of language professionals can meet and connect.

We’re not a membership community. Anyone who considers themselves a language professional is welcome to join.

Who are the attendees?

Language teachers, coaches, trainers, tutors, translators, interpreters, transcreators, voice-over actors, voice coaches, language and speech therapists, language and translation consultants, researchers, subtitlers, proofreaders, editors, copywriters, forensic linguists, multilingual VAs, computer linguists, language entrepreneurs, and many other wonderful souls follow the initiative and join us each month.

We meet and learn from each other. We are inspired by talks and interviews with some brilliant minds. We ask for support and learn of new opportunities.
