    Here is some feedback from others on this course's trainer:



    "Kudos to Philippe, who presented the webinar "Domptez Wordfast Anywhere, le seul outil TAO vraiment gratuit qui en vaille la peine". The content of the presentation was excellent and the flow was just right...not painfully slow as one might expect with this sort of material (after watching certain YouTube presentations by IT personnel of a well-known company who sadly know nothing about teaching). Philippe thinks and speaks clearly and shares his knowledge honestly with his audience."
    Michelle Arpin



    "Very clear, well presented and interesting. Thank you Philippe!"
