Official Document Translation: Creating an Important Translation SpecialtyII: New or Continuation? Feb 28, 2012

Hi Suzanne,


It is my understanding that you did offer a webinar entitled "Official Document Translation: Creating an Important Translation Specialty" a couple of months ago. I wonder if this course "Official Document Translation: Creating an Important Translation Specialty II" is a continuation of the previous course.


Best Regards

Shirley
