Thanks Suzanne for some valuable infoAug 17, 2011

I would not have thought of approaching directly some of the organizations you mentioned. Thanks for that. Otherwise, ti was unfortunate to lose audio at moments. Would have been nice to hear live the response to a few more questions.

A very informative webinarAug 17, 2011

Though I joined later, I have found out many useful tips that I didn't know before like translating seals, etc. Looking forward to getting links to the handouts and the recording, and then maybe I will have more questions to ask. I am afraid I can't join twitter - I have registered there long ago and never used it - so all the passwords are forgotten. I suppose it would be easier for me to communicate via facebook. Thank you anyway.

It was a very interesting and helpful presentation. And it's not everyday that we have the opportunity of having such a course with the expertise of a Linguist-Lawyer as Suzanne Deliscar. Look foward to the next.
