Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the course minimum participation - unfortunately, courses may occasionally be cancelled or rescheduled, if the confirmed participation in advance is very low.

Bio: Since 2007 I have operated my own language studio, LinguaCom, providing translation and tutoring services to clients internationally. I have 15 years of experience as a translator and private tutor (before I started my own business, I worked with other service providers, translated and edited academic materials from scratch to publication, and taught English in various settings, both private and public). My first experience as a trainer was in 2015, when I was invited to teach a course of advanced proficiency in a translators training program in Lifshitz Academic College, Jerusalem. I was also a speaker on a ProZ Translator's Day Virtual Conference.

I share my experience, tips and thoughts in a translation blog on my website: http://blog.lingua-com.com/. You are welcome to visit and take a part in the discussion by posting your comments and questions.

I hold an MA in Special Education from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a BA in Psychology as well as a BA in Culture and Language Studies (English, French). I have a certificate in Technical Writing.

Hi Fran,

Thank you for your interest in the training series.

The sessions will start at 11:00am GMT/UTC, it should be 12:00 CET. All sessions will be recorded, thus if you do not attend the live courses you will still have certificates of attendance and unlimited access to the videos and handouts.

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen

Hi Helen,
thanks for your reply. I just applied for it and paid. I'm so looking forward to the course now. I have another couple of questions and I hope you don't mind making it clear once more for me. In the course description there are 5 appointments but I seem to be registered to only 4 of them. The November meeting is missing. This is what I can see from the list in the 'my Education' section of my profile. Is this a mistake? Where should I write to get it fixed? support?

2. I received several emails saying I should secure a place and pay as soon as I can. I guess I should disregard these emails as I purchased the whole package and can watch the webminars any time after release. Is this correct?
Thanks in advance,
Fran
