Hello Seth,

yes, there is a video. However, I suggest that you might wish to wait a couple of days to allow ProZ.com to increase the number of attendees.

I have just sent a support request to ProZ, requesting that they allow more of our colleagues to attend the webinar, because they are the only ones to increase the course limit.

I'm looking forward to "seeing" you on January 15th.

Best regards,

Thayenga

Access to video recording and training materials.Jan 15, 2014

I registered and paid for this seminar but was not able to attend. I wish to access the recording, which according to the information on this page should be available for one week. How can I access it? I found it in the video centre but it is asking me to pay again.

Thank you for your help.

Hello Michelle,

I have checked your "My videos" page, http://www.proz.com/videos/my_videos , and see that you should have access to the video normally. Also, I have resent a link to training materials where you can find the book and the presentation mentioned on the webinar.

Hope this helps.
