Is Arabic included?Oct 28, 2013

Under the learning objectives it says: "It is designed for experienced translators who will learn how to draft legal correspondence in their target language(s)". Does this mean that one will be able to do so in Arabic as well, given that the trainer's working languages are French/Spanish/English?

Hello Malaika,

Thank you for your message. The course is conducted completely in English, and is useful for those whose language pairs in include English. The course is designed to provide insights into the components of various legal documents, save and except for contracts, which are explored in another webinar.
