Of courseSep 11, 2018

I will mention a little bit about that one during this course, but if you like, I think me and Helen, who is responsible for ProZ trainings, could arrange something more specific.

memoQ and Déjà Vu are quite similar. For novice users, who haven't been 'prewired' by one of the major players and who have an open mind for innovative techniques, CafeTran Espresso 2018 surely can be interesting. Also note that there is an interesting offer to use CafeTran Espresso 2018 via the Proz Plus license.
