Very interesting!


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.

Excellent!!!!


I enjoyed learning many aspects of the translation profession during the annual virtual event for Translators very much. Thank you so much for organising such an important event on annual basis for us to update our knowledge and skills.


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