Interactive and succinct Mar 29

I found the presentation very engaging; there were quick polls, activities towards the end. Thank you, Brian, for this very informative session!

Interesting Mar 30

Some parts were common sense, but it was interesting to see how others tackled this issue. I was particularly struck by the suggestion that one reads the translation before comparing it with the source so as to view it from the reader's point of view, not from the translator's point of view as the translator has the text in front of him/her. I did not agree with all he said but that may be a personal opinion. I liked the suggestion of changing how the screen text appears so as to check. I liked the polls as they showed how others worked too. Worth it. here were some parts I did not understand but since I now have the presentations, I can go over them.
