"I really enjoyed the course. Suzanne is an excellent instructor, she certainly knows what she is talking about and provides very helpful and practical examples of legal drafting/translating. It gave me a broad overview of the whole sequence of legal processes and communications and their individual function. I believe this is essential for translators working in the legal field and it greatly contributes to a successful result. Thank you, Suzanne! "
"good, obviously knows a lot about the subject and knows how to explain it clearly.
Like I said, the subject matter was a bit more basic than I expected, but it was well delivered.
There was a delay in answering my question, but it was answered fine in the end."
"The trainer is obviously familiar with the English-language terminology and is able to give good examples and explain usages. Unfortunately, it appears that her familiarity with the terms of art in use in this specific field in Spanish-speaking countries is less solid."
"She spoke at a measured speed, which is good for an international audience (I am British). Only occasionally did she slur syllables together. On training courses taught by people who do not have mother-tongue English (e.g. SDL training courses and ProZ training courses), the combination of their non-English accent and the vagaries of the internet connection can make it frustratingly difficult to understand them. A mother-tongue accent, or very nearly mother-tongue, is essential, otherwise the students simply can't understand what the trainer is saying, which means the whole thing is a waste of time and money.
In the course of two hours one voice can become pretty tiresome - this trainer used her voice well, despite having a cold.
Also, she did not keep saying "so". The mania for saying "so" at the start of every clause has infected thousands of people in the last 10 years. The word already had rather too many functions before the mania started; nowadays it is given so many functions that it has become meaningless. Well done to her for using words to convey ideas rather than to release air pressure.
She didn't keep moving her mouse pointer in circles around things on the screen, which shows unusual restraint - I am sure I would keep drawing mouse circles around things while talking about them.
Often people who are setting out to teach will waste 10 minutes telling you what they will teach and how valuable it will be to us and how they have so much to say that they will have to really hurry to get it all in and then talking about themselves and why they decided to set up this course and bla bla bla. Our trainer's intro was just beginning to seem long when she cut to the chase and started teaching, and thereafter she taught straight fact after straight fact all the way to the end. Many thanks."
"Ms.Deliscar did a really great job, the hour just passes by in one breath with lots of useful tips and examples (like the football player story), succeeding to put quite a matter-of-fact content into an easili comprehensible form of interesting discourse.
Thanks a lot!"
"Suzanne's presentation was very clear and easy to understand for a non native English speaker. She explained important concepts very well and allowed extra time for questions. I particularly appreciated the links to resources in my language pairs. "
"Very clear and systematic, which I enjoyed very much. Full of resources and available for help and answers to questions related to the topic, too.
Some one suggested to log out from Skype and I believe that would be preferable too: more for the noise than for the pop-ups. One could still follow the course but it could be distracting. On the other side, there is no such a place with no distractions!
"Suzanne is a very practical trainer. Her way of explaining the information is easy to underestand, yet not overly simplistic. She trains at a good pace, fluent & interesting. I look forward to more classes from her.
Thanks Suzanne! -- Monika G."
"I posted a simple question, she answered. Later on, one contract she was using as a sample contradicted her previous explanation. I pointed it out. The trainer, instead of going deeper, seemed to dismiss the contradiction as irrelevant."
"I liked Suzanne's accent and style of presenting, although I didn't like the idea of taking questions on Twitter instead of during the webinar. We couldn't do all the questions during the 60 minutes we had at our disposal, but for me it wasn't a problem to stay longer. The problem with Twitter is that it's not comfortable to browse (you have to make many clicks), and messages have to be very short, which is obviously not enough for a topic so complicated as translation."
"Suzanne is dynamic and motivated. She is easy to understand. The course was well prepared. Suzanne really knows what she talks about. Her pace makes the course go really faster! I will not hesitate to join another webinar with this trainer and I recommend her to the other trainees!"
