    Here is some feedback from others on this course's trainer:



    "Kudos to Philippe, who presented the webinar "Domptez Wordfast Anywhere, le seul outil TAO vraiment gratuit qui en vaille la peine". The content of the presentation was excellent and the flow was just right...not painfully slow as one might expect with this sort of material (after watching certain YouTube presentations by IT personnel of a well-known company who sadly know nothing about teaching). Philippe thinks and speaks clearly and shares his knowledge honestly with his audience."
    Michelle Arpin



    "Very clear, well presented and interesting. Thank you Philippe!"

    Hello FranNY13,
    I'm sorry you are no able to attend.
    As always the training will be recorded and all resource material will be made available after the session. Some people take that option, they purchase the training and follow it when it suits them better. Off-course doing it this way is not as interactive.
    I haven't planned doing a self-paced training on ProZ.com at present. However i can provide personalized training.

    To use Wordfast Anywhere you do not need to have Wordfast intalled. You just need an internet connexion and a device with a good internet browser. The new interface works very well even on android browsers or on 2 In 1 transformer books computers. So it's very mobile and it's free.

    Best regards

    Informative training course. I knew about WFA because I have an account since 2009 or 2010, but didn't know how to use, I tried to, since I probably don't have Trados yet, which may be required for its use.

    Thanks Helen and Philippe for the training. I really appreciate it.
