Explanation will be given on how to use various filters available in order to deal with different text markups. Resource console will be explained.

  • Translation memories and LiveDocs – options, similarities, differences, how to make the best of them

    I registered last-minute and didn't get the e-mail with the link for joining the webinar (yes, I did check the spam folder). I hope I'll at least receive a link to watch the recording?
    Thanks in advance for a quick feedback

    Hi Tanja,

    I am really sorry to hear this. I will contact the staff now and let them now about the issue so they could send you the recorded version. In the meantime, I will send you the presentation (which is a very short fragment of what was actually said in the webinar), but it may give you an idea of what it was all about.
