    Need in-person training course in Philadelphia, PAMay 4

    Dear Paolo,

    Please let me know if there is any chance you may ever be visiting Philadelphia, PA (so-called City of Brotherly Love). I purchased all of the latest SDL Trados programs available in 2016 and was looking forward to further training. But instead, soon after my purchase, Trados introduced SDL Trados Studio 2017, dropping all emphasis on Studio 2015. As a result I was unable to move forward and unfortunately am still waiting to learn Trados.
