Access to recording and materials afterwardsFeb 11, 2014

I am interested in this course but can't attend at the scheduled time. Unlike other Proz.com webinars, this one does not mention that the recording and materials would be available for a certain time afterwards. Is it therefore not available?

Hi Odile,

thank you for your interest in the course.
Out of a dozen tools we will touch on in the webinar, 7 can also be used in Mac environments (either as downloadable tools or online services).

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
