“Thanks for designing and offering this comprehensive course”

Today I completed the CW ELAB course for translators. I would like to thank Diego Cresceri and team of Creative Words for designing and offering this comprehensive course, which covers a wide range of topics related to translation (localization of software and videogames, CAT tools, project management and many others). I really appreciated having the opportunity to learn how to use new CAT tools (like Memsource and Smartcat) and to receive useful tips on how to become a freelance translator.

I highly recommend this course!

“Engaging and practical course on translation”

As far as I was really busy this spring with university and summer session, I am finally taking time to catch up with many interesting opportunities I noticed in the meantime.
I want to thank Creative Words not only for this engaging and practical course on translation, but also for the fast support they provided to solve some technical issues.
