$50 an hour is SteepAug 12, 2014

I think that $149 for 3 hours of learning is better suited as a private lesson instead of a webinar.

Thank you for your comment. The pricing for this series was set based on the fact that the opportunity to complete a legal translation sample and have it marked offline is included, as well as in-course testing. In addition, there is significant reference material included.

Sincerely,

Why do we need these courses when we have Proz/Kudos and technical dictionaries?Aug 13, 2014

Without wishing to denigrate your input, Suzanne, in what way is your course an improvement on the intelligent use of Proz/Kudos terminology searches and good legal dictionaries?

Past Participant Feedback re CourseAug 13, 2014

Hello William,

Thank you for your message. Here are some of the comments received from past course attendees at both the French-English and Spanish-English Legal Terminology Workshops:

"My husband is a law firm partner called to the Bar in Ontario and a practising litigator ... He listened with me to parts of this webinar and was impressed with Ms. Deliscar's presentation and with the depth and breadth of her knowledge. As a translator and editor of academic, government policy, and business documents, I found this webinar to be efficient, effective and extremely good value for the money. Highly recommended!"

"Trainer is knowledgable and easy to follow."

"I'm learning a lot and I really like this Webinar format."

"Gaining terminology in this way is better than straining over translator forums waiting for someone to give the best answer."

"Suzanne Deliscar has an impressive command of the field and a wonderful teaching style."

Timeframe for translation sampleAug 18, 2014

Hello, Suzanne!

I am interested in the class but will be away (on vacation!) on the date of the session. I know I can watch the video afterwards, but what is the timeframe for submitting the sample translation? Would I be able to do it a week later and still submit it for your review?

Thank you!
Matthew

Hello Matthew,

Yes, during the video instructions will be given with regard to submission of the translation sample, and the e-mail including the translation sample will also include instructions, so not to worry.

Thanks for your interest,

William: Some Proz/Kudos terminology searches have bad and mediocre entriesAug 26, 2014

And, Proz/kudos and some good dictionaries are simply not enough, especially for translators needing to obtain further translator training in legal area.

Would it work if I cannot attend ?Oct 14, 2014

Hello Suzanne,

I am interested in buying the package for the three courses, but unfortunately I would only be able to attend to the one on October 22.
Would it make sense to still subscribe and catch-up going through the recordings of the 2 other seminars?

Thanks,

Giovanny Rivadeneira
