The sessionis full. So pity!Jul 19, 2011

I'm very interested in participating in this webinar. Only one date, the 29th of July 2011 is convenient for me. As soon I was informed I tried to register but the training session was full at that moment.
Could I try to participate anyway, just in case if a registered participant didn't attend the session?

Hats off to proZ.comJul 19, 2011

What a wonderful program. As the saying goes in the Eurovision Song Contest, you deserve "douze points." I fully endorse these kinds of programmes which help us freelance translators and enhance proZ.com's image as a highly professional website dedicated to the concerns of its members. In Hebrew, we say, "Yishar Koach" (May you go from strength to strength - loose translation).

Hello Lucia,

I have attended your webinar "Meeting clients at ProZ.com" on July 22, 2011.
Afterwards this course was listed in my profile under "Training sessions attended". Now however, this link is missing. What happened?

Thanks again for the interesting webinar!

Marina
