Conference feedback

Excellent!! Very useful, Thank You!!!


Even though I was not able to attend all sessions due to relevant reasons, I would like to thank deeply all people who have done their best for the success of the conference. It was my first time to attend such conference of high level, and I have to say that I have learned a lot due to the diversity of topics. This is another way of refreshing our mind. Once again thank you for the possibility of downloading individual presentation on demand.

Great event. I found presentations very illuminating


It's not the first time that I'm annoyed about the fact that poeple pose as "outsourcers" that are obviously freelancers or individuals seeking work and/or promoting their services rather that being agencies or real outsourcers. Why is this not monitored by proz.com and relevant posts deleted?

10:03 Apr 8, 2014 Lbenito_atril: 1174606 All He seems to think that he can come here to ask questions abotu the translation he is doing. Perhaps we should let him know that what we meant is that they can ask us any questions they want about DVX3
10:03 Apr 8, 2014 Blandine-ATRIL: 1459982 All Ulziisaikhan, I think you are asking more a linguistic question rather than a tool question, maybe somebody in the chat room has an answer for you..?

10:06 Apr 8, 2014 Pavel Tsvetkov: 634408 All Also, I think I am voicing the concern of many Deja vu X users on www.proz.com – Atril needs to monitor more closely the Deja vu forum on www.proz.com and address the concerns and queries there.
