Hello everyone,

Thanks to those who attended today's webinar.

I'm afraid that, due to technical difficulties, I was unable to view that a few of you had in fact confirmed that you could hear me. Thus, today's webinar has been rescheduled for August 16 at 14:00 GMT: http://www.proz.com/translator-training/course/7135-meeting_clients_at_prozcom

We will be sure to look into the errors that occurred today so that they can be straightened out for next time.

My sincere apologies for any inconvenience, and I hope to "web-meet" you all next week.

Best regards,

Maria
