Hello Deborah,
Could you be more specific about the content of the course? What different documentation sources are going to be part of the course? What classification is going to be used? What is the exact structure of the material taught? Thanks

Hello Judith, very sorry for the belated reply Jun 28, 2012

hi Judith unfortunately I didn't receive an email notification of your question and have only just visited the Training page and noticed it. The documentation sources are virtually all online, using the Internet as widely as possible to pinpoint sources with the information you need, as quickly and efficiently as possible. It can be as simple as: you want to translate "una ciudad llena de vida" into English as idiomatically as possible, avoiding clichés. I suggest to you a quick route which includes using online thesauruses, but searching them very fast as you don't have a lot of time in your daily work to research individual terms. I have designed the training so that you provide the terms you wish to research because this is a "real" situation and that is the most effective way for you to develop your own array of search techniques which you can then build on and expand yourself.
