Here is some feedback from others on these course's trainer:

"Claudia has a clear, practical, "natural" way of organizing and exposing a subject. She lets you feel at ease even with complex subjects and, in addition to the theoretical information, gives a lot of practical examples and materials/tools to use. This make her webinars not just very informative, but also immediately useful. Bravo!"
Gianfranco Zecchino

"Well designed and interesting course. Also the handouts and the vast materials sent after the webinar are very interesting and complete. As usual Claudia shows full commitment to the subjects and to the attendees. Very serious and professional."

Dear Claudia,
I'd love to attend your Healthcare Terminology session but at that time I am busy.
Are you going to organise the same course again in the near future?

Thank you!

Watch a recording of the webinarMar 25, 2013

Hello Claudia. I cannot make this webinar but would still like to listen to the session. Am I right in saying that if I register and pay for the session, it will be available to listen to after the webinar? If this is correct, for how long will it be available?
Thank you.

Does this apply to other Asian languages as well?Mar 26, 2013

Am I right in assuming this is an English rundown of how to translate words into English from any other language? Is it safe to assume that these courses are not just specifically for Spanish translators?

Thanks!

Application to Asian languagesMar 29, 2013

Hello, Mentos. The session is language-neutral, provided in English. This means it is delivered in English but could be taken by any translator or interpreter who works in any language pair (but with sufficient knowledge of English to understand the session - i.e., you may or may not have English in your working pairs, but you must know English to understand the session). The terminology is a content terminology, meaning that I will explain the terms most commonly used in the healthcare and medical industry. I will provide templates for you to find your equivalencies in your language pairs but it is the content of the terms and the terms themselves what I will be explaining.
