Conference feedback

While not being able to attend each session for obvious reasons (I am thinking of taking a day off next year!), what I saw and heard being discussed was extremely useful for all translators. Thanks for organising this interesting and relevant event, and for the possibility of downloading individual presentations on demand!

Drew MacFadyen.. Thank you for this nice event. Unfortuantely, I can not find my pdf attendance for this event. Only 2015 is there in my profile and the details of this year but no certificate whatsoever for 2016. Could you do somethinf about this issue please. Waiting your reply.


Great event. I found presentations very illuminating


Thank you, ProZ.com, for this wonderful, FREE even, that could be attended practically by anyone in or interested in language services. As far as I know, it is the ONLY one of its kind worldwide! That, in itself, is a wonderful offering for all of us in the profession. All presentations provide a state-of-the-art VISION and tools that may be applied immediately. This effort is really admirable. As a presenter and and attendee, I thank the opportunity of bringing my content to others and learning a lot from so many people! Thank you.

I loved the session on interpreting with a tablet and also the one about the Burmese language. I took the time to review my Proz profile too! Thanks for your professionalism!
