Basic terminology in legal settingsMar 15, 2013

Hello dear Claudia, I would like to purchase your seminar, since it's been quite a while since I have translated a franchising contract and am only dealing with legal terms at the moment in my native language of German. Can I purchase it at a discount price, please? Many thanks.

Best, Juliana Mraz

5 sessions bundle discountApr 4, 2013

Dear Claudia,

I am very much interested in your training session and I was thinking about purchasing the 5 sessions bundle but I have a doubt regarding the April 2 T06 - Basic Terminology in Healthcare & Medicine session, which has already took place. Do you think I will have access to the videos and materials of that session as well, even though I buy the package after the live session?
Thank you so much for helping me clarify this doubt.

Hello Rossana,

I am sorry to intrude in this correspondence but indeed, if you purchase the sessions in the bundle you will be given unlimited access to training materials and the webinar video.

Please note that the video from the T06 webinar has not been released yet. It will be announced at the website within one working week after the webinar. By purchasing the bundle today you will get access to four online sessions from the bundle and to training materials from the T06 webinar at http://www.proz.com/translator-training/course/8260 Once the video is released you will be notified accordingly.

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen

Purchase after Apr 9, 2013

I have several questions please
1)Do you still get an attendance certificate if you purchase the bundle, as you will have access to videos? I missed the Terminology one
2)Also I would like to know more about the EU one, as I graduated in EU affairs, so probably know the procedure-preliminary proceedings, etc. Is it about these?
3) You will explain about US legal system/terms but are they general & used in most countries, but with different terminology?
Thank you,
Josephine
