Thanks! Jun 26, 2007

Thanks, João. This looks like a great conference. I find these three sessions particularly interesting: "Tradução e Deontologia: uma combinação impossível?", "Technical Translation: The Highway To Heaven", and "The Golden Triangle: Translator, Client, and Money". I see that you're presenting the last one. Good luck!
