Here is some feedback from others on this course's trainer:



"I learned a lot from Konstantin. He did very good presentations in a understandable way. Thank you! I would love to attend other webinars sometime again."

Siwei Wang




"Konstantin is the best webinar-presenter that I have ever heard; many others are often too vague, or give information that is so vague or basic as to be meaningless (like "be nice to your clients')!! His info is clear and interesting, without talking down to anyone. He understands the issues facing translators and has really thought about ways to make things better. It's clear that time and effort has gone into his preparation. I will continue to come back again and again!"

Cynthia Johnson
