Summary:Learn how to succeed in your Translation career with effective email communication with the customers. Learn to express your thoughts and ideas clearly and persuasively in writing and attract customers' attention to get your emails always opened and read.
Description
In one hour learn how to effectively communicate with the customer in any situation:
- when submitting a quote via ProZ
- sending your CV to a potential client
- accepting or rejecting a job offer

Being a language professional you must understand that each email you write is a snapshot of your writing skills. Without well-written communication it is unlikely you will achieve success in the Translation Business upon the whole.
