Hello,

I need these pieces of information in order to arrange my time in Berlin (hotel, free time and so on). Then I need to know if there is a discount by attending (and paying) the two consecutive sessions on 1st and 2nd April or somewhat else. Last information I need regards the language: is everything explained in German or in English? On the PC (and as SDL-software) will we work on a German or English version? I think that it is also important to know. Many thanks in advance!
