TRADOS for Project ManagersJul 17, 2016

I am interested in this course and others but have the following questions:

(1) On the 18th August you are teaching Parts 2 and then Part 1 of the Project Managers course. Surely it would be better to do Part 1 and then Part 2 or are the 2 courses independent of each other?
(2) To have a full understanding of TRADOS is it then necessary to go onto The beginners course / intermediate and finally advanced - or after these courses go directly to the Trados advanced courses?

Was this course cancelled for today? I did not receive a link for the online session although I registered and paid (I checked the spam folder as well). However, I did not receive any information that it was cancelled either. Given that this is my first paid course on Proz I am not happy about this lack of information. I have opened a ticket which has not yet been assigned and the course has supposedly been ongoing for a half an hour. I receive ads from Proz and translation job offers just fine,... See more

I receive ads from Proz and translation job offers just fine, so the e-mail address is working in general. Just no information about the course.

Dear Dennis,

Sorry for the belated reply but you can take courses in any direction you like, there are no musts. Of course, I would suggest you checking each session's description and talking points in order to decide for yourself if you already aware of it or still would need more information.

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen
