The purpose of this article is to describe my experience as a beneficiary of the COST mobility program and to present the positive effects that participating in such an important research network has had on my career as a teacher and researcher in the field of Technical Writing and translations, at the Specialization of Translation and Interpretation from the University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest. I will describe the aims, activities and outcomes o the project, as well as the academic and personal development in terms of research and materials creation.
