Thank you for your interest in this course.
I would like it to be as practical as possible. I decided that the best way to achieve it will be to create a new website and start promoting it. Over the course of the next few weeks I will create a new website for a freelance translator (me) under the address www.polish-translator.co.uk and in the meantime post updates first here and than on the website itself. Of course conclusions from this process will be included in the contents of webinars.

18 days to the first webinarNov 27, 2010

I keep working on the new website. As I already had a domain and I have an unIimited hosting I did not have to make any decisions regarding these two issues.
However I made a few other decisions - I want the new website to be:
- easy to navigate
- lightweight (loading very quickly) and also
- cheap - I want to spend on it’s development and initial promotion as little as possible so that the price would not be obstacle to anyone who would like to create a similar website.
Also as I want to update the website frequently I decided that I will need a CMS (content management system) and I decided on using Joomla.
Currently I am working on the texts for this website and hopefully next week it will be available.

Recording available to those who don't log in at the scheduled time?Dec 12, 2010

It is unlikely that I will be able to join the webinar at the scheduled time. Will I be able to view the recording later even if I did not access the webinar at 16:00 on 15th December ? I'd rather NOT cancel my registration if I can view the recording at a later date.

no materials at all...Jan 11, 2011

I am disappointed and unhappy that we haven't received any materials as promised. If I knew that I would have taken notes... Even though it happens that people don't keep their promises it still makes me feel sad in a way...

Dear all,

The webinar powerpoint presentation and extra materials used during the session have been emailed to all registered and paid. I am sorry for the delay in sending these files. The trainer did sent the files on time before Christmas, and they failed to be distributed. I apologize for this.

Stanislaw also uploaded the presentation used during the webinar and additional materials to his website: www.polish-translation.biz they are visible on the homepage in the right column in the section: latest downloads as well as on the page: http://polish-translation.biz/links/download/cat_view/32-seo.html

If you happened to miss the webinar session, make sure you visit http://www.proz.com/videos/Designing%20and%20optimizing%20your%20website/595 to get access to the webinar recording.

Thanks for your patience and sorry for the inconveniences this may have caused.

Best regards,

Soledad Azcona
