The expertise acquired through previous professional experience in the fields of language teaching, information technology and business management represented the basis for my future career as a professional freelance linguist and localization specialist in areas such as software and hardware products, localization of websites and video games, online and offline marketing and advertising, transcreation, review and editing.

My career as a full-time freelancer started 9 years ago and is currently based on long-term collaboration with major business names in these fields, as well as with various institutions of the European Union, schools and universities, and private clients.

How can I pay for only one session?Feb 27, 2014

Hi, I don´t see a button to purchase just one session. I can only see the $69 link which leads you to the page where you can pay for the four sessions. But I would like to start with one and see how it goes first.
Can you please help me with that?
Thank you.

Look rightFeb 28, 2014

There's a registration column on the right of the course description. It says:

Course registration
Last minute - 22 seats remain
[Purchase for $20.00*]

So you can just press this button and follow the instructions, I guess.

Poor contentMar 11, 2014

The webinar was finished after 45 minutes and not after 60 minutes. I asked a question at the end that Florin said he had already answered during the webinar, but considering that we still had plenty of time, he could have given me an answer anyway, also shortly.

Hello Ryszard,

Thank you for your interest in the training.

The course will be recorded. About 5 working days after the session all registrants will receive an email with a link to the page with webinar video and handouts. The link to materials will be emailed to your email address and a certificate of attendance will be issued even do not participate in the live session.

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen
