Translation for environmental organisations part one and two (terminology)Jun 17, 2016

Hello,

I was wondering if these two courses or the second one (Environmental translation: Environmental Organizations, Programs and Geographical names) are a follow up to "Translation for environmental organisations part one and two (terminology)" or the same, which I thoroughly enjoyed and would love to join their follow up courses.

Thanks in advance,
Cynthia
