I don't understand why you chose to give the wordfast pro level 1 workshop seven days after the wordfast pro level 2 workshop. Wouldn't it be better to do it the other way around so beginners can attend the seminars in order?

Also, I would like to know whether you have experience using wordfast in Mac OSX instead of windows, as most translators. Most people will say it is the same, but I tend to find that standard wordfast shortcuts are not always functional in mac.

Best!

Hello Camila,

Thank you for your interest in the training.

Sessions on Wordfast are conducted on a monthly basis, http://www.proz.com/translator-training/trainers/446/courses . A workshop on Wordfast-PRO – Level 1 has been conducted recently and a session on Wordfast-PRO – Level 2 is now available.

More sessions will be announced soon.

As for the question about using wordfast in Mac OSX, I believe this issue has been discussed on the forum at http://www.proz.com/forum/86

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen

Hello SANSON03,

I am sorry for the belated reply, but if you have checked the training program and think that this is a right training for you, you can participate in the session. It is not a must to participate in the first part before taking the second webinar. To make sure you do not need to participate in the Wordgast-PRO Level 1 session please check the training program at: http://www.proz.com/translator-training/course/8791-wordfast_pro_level_1

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen
