Bio: I am a freelance translator and I have been using SDL Trados extensively in my daily work. I find the software very easy, helpful and enjoyable to use. I have attended professional Trados training sessions during my work at the European Central Bank, thus my practical Trados skills have a sound base. But most importantly...I know how to make working with Trados easy. I will tell you what you need to know to get started, and to learn more. I hope that you will find my enthusiasm inspiring and I will do my best for you to leave the course with a feeling …”Who would have thought it is so easy”.
