On premises? Apr 4, 2006

Does it have to be attended in person or can it be online? I checked the page but it does not say. It looks interesting.
Do you know?

Thanks.

Yes, on premises. It is free though. There is an excellent group of judiciary interpreters in Puerto Rico, and Janis Palma is doing a tremendous job preparing new ones. You may visit their site at http://www.orgsites.com/ny/mvoiti/ or write to her at mvoiti@att.net

Too bad Apr 5, 2006

Dear Luisa,

Thanks for answering. I was afraid so. Unfortunately, it`s a long way up, too expensive to afford getting there right now.

Thanks for the information, though.

Best wishes,

Walter.

I know the feeling Apr 5, 2006

Walter, believe me, I know the feeling. It is the same overhere when I see so many interesting translation events taking place in Buenos Aires, and I wish at least some of them could be taken online.
