Добрый день, Марина.

Спасибо за Ваш интерес к тренингу. Всем участникам вебинара будет открыт неограниченный доступ к файлу презентации и видеозаписи вебинара. Данные материалы полезны для самостоятельного изучения после посещения вебинара.

Как правило, Сара Коломбо не использует заготовленный текст доклада. Данный тренинг содержит множество примеров рекламных текстов и переводов из практики Сары. Поэтому знание языка — одно из условий участия в вебинаре.

Возможно, Вам будет интересен другой тренинг: "Практические аспекты перевода рекламных текстов", https://www.proz.com/translator-training/course/9409 ? Данный курс предлагает доступ к видео, записанному на вебинаре, и презентации.

Если у Вас возникли вопросы, напишите, пожалуйста, в службу поддержки пользователей сайта, https://www.proz.com/support , и я буду рада Вам помочь.

С уважением,
Елена
