I attended the TAUS Webinar "Sneak peek into our Post-Editing course", and it is a beneficial webinar - especially if you are in doubt whether to register for the TAUS course or not. I had already decided to register for the course before attending the TAUS Webinar, so after my participation in the TAUS Webinar, I became convinced that the course is right for me.
