Why so early? Jan 23, 2013

The scheduled time is too early (7:00 AM in my time zone). People are getting children ready for school. Would there be another webinar scheduled at a better time?

Timezones and recording of webinar Jan 24, 2013

Hi Victoria. does try to accommodate as many users and timezones as possible, but it is not always convenient for all. We will strive to conduct a series of webinars at a later time, perhaps next month.

Thanks for the input.

Unavailable! Jan 29, 2013

I can't make the webinar but am really interested in it as a Trados newbie. This is the first time I'd have done a Proz webinar but I know with other providers there's been the option of signing up and getting a URL to go through it again another time. Is that possible here? I appreciate it wouldn't be live then but I think it would be really beneficial to me if that option were available.

Can the Tips and Tricks for SDL Trados Studio 2011 be applied for SDL Trados Studio 2009?

100% Free, no certificate, recording of session to be made available Jan 29, 2013

Thanks everyone for your interest and questions. Allow me to provide some additional insight.

Yes these free webinars are indeed 100% free. The system used to register attendees may have some automated reminder and follow up messaging that is intended to be used for all webinars, including those that have a fee. That language regarding "no refunds" is intended for paid webinars - you can disregard that for these free webinars. Simply register at and you will receive the links to join via email.

Unfortunately certificates of attendance are not provided for these free webinars. As they are free and attended by 1,000's it is simply not possible to match registration with actual attendance so we do not issue certificates of attendance for free webinars.

All the free webinars will be recorded and the recordings will be made available to registrants and attendees. If you register for the session, you will receive a link to the recording once the webinar ends - so if you cannot attend, it is best to still register so that you will receive the video recording links automatically via email.

Thanks, and hope to "see" everyone at the free webinars next week.

Free Video of free webinar-SDL Trados Studio 2011 Tips and Tricks Feb 1, 2013

That's a nice ideea. I'm also interested in receiving such a free video to watch it when I have some spare time.


Drew MacFadyen
Recording will be made available Feb 1, 2013

Yes the recording of this webinar will be made available to registrants and attendees for free. If you are registered, irrespective of your attendance, you will receive an email with the link to the recording of the video so it is recommended that interested users register so that they will receive the link automatically.

The recording link is usually added to this free webinar page as well.

Looking forward to "seeing" everyone in attendance next week - this should be one of's biggest free webinar weeks ever.

mention it under "conferences attended" in our profiles Mar 19, 2013

Hi dear Drew,

Is there any chance that you only list these webinars we attend under the title "conferences attended" in our profiles with no certificate or anything else. You can see an example of this in my profile. I attended the free webinar "Questions you have always wanted to ask 2013" and now it can be seen in my profile. I just want it be known by the visitors of my profile that I am sparing time to develop my skills and knowledge.

Hope this is not too difficult for you..


Drew MacFadyen
Listing free webinars in profiles Mar 19, 2013

Hi Mustafa - the "Questions you have always wanted to ask" event was a virtual event, and that is placed in profiles as some of those virtual events, like the big annual International Translation day event are eligible for ATA CE credits and therefore must have notification in attendees profiles for submitting CE credits. This certificate/notice is tied in to not only registration, but attendance at the virtual event. can verify this automatically as the virtual event takes place on

As the free webinars take place on the GoToWebinar platform there currently is no way to automatically (via API) verify attendance at the free webinars. The only option would be to manually check, and with 10,000+ attendees annually that simply is not possible.

So unfortunately there is not a simple means to add confirmation/verification of attendance at free webinars.

Attendees that want to showcase that to clients can certainly include that in the "about me" section of their profiles.

Thanks for attending, appologies there is not a simple solution.
