    Dear Ivana,

    Since this course will take place on the previous day of the ProZ.com international conference in Rome, there's a chance that not all attendees will be locals. In that case the course language will be English.

    Dear Ivana,

    This course teaches attendees how to use the new features and functionality of SDL Trados Studio 2009 and provides all of the knowledge you need to pass SDL Trados Studio 2009 Level 1 exam. Since you are already using SDL Trados 2007 and upgrading to SDL Trados Studio 2009 a part of the training can be a revision for you. I recommend you give a look at the topics to be covered during the course in the "Program" part.

    Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

    Best regards,

    Internet connection at the course siteApr 12, 2011

    I would like to take this course but do not have Trados installed in my portable computer and do not want to install it. I normally connect to my home pc through team viewer and use it this way. I would like to be sure that the room where the course is going to be held has an internet connection or that it is not an underground room where mobile phones do not work (I can have internet access via mobile).
    Thanks a lot in advance!!

    Getting prepared for the courseApr 21, 2011

    Hello again!
    I have just paid for the course. Do I have to prepare myself for the course in any other way except for having installed Trados Studio 2009 on my PC? I have installed the full version, not the trial one, haven't opened it yet though.
    Thanks for your reply!
    I hope that someone will answer both Lauras' questions too, I'm curious about the answers.
    Saluti da Zagabria e ci vediamo a Roma!
    Ivana.
