Conference feedback

Very useful!

The content was great, the chats were great. The only thing we would like to improve is to be able to retrieve the whole chat to review later. There was great information on the collaboration chat this morning, but the history button only gives you a little bit, not all, so we missed some of the info because there were too many participants. Still, it was a great translation day! Thank you!!

Thank you ProZ.com for this great event. I learned many things. I can't wait for next year's virtual conference!


Great event! I have learned so much about different translation tools (since I haven't used any of them yet), so much useful information!


Great event, really interesting and unusual tips & tricks too!
Translation tools and strategies for freelance were, imho, the best points.


Thank you for possibility to attend to this event for free and to know a new useful information!!!
