Conference feedback

Excellent!!!!


Excellent!! Very useful, Thank You!!!


Very interesting and useful. I used to see terms like transcreation and copywriting without knowing exactly what they refer to. I appreciated the tips about earning more and building relationships. I thank Proz.com and all speakers for their time and help. God willing, I expect to attend the next Proz.com virtual conference for International Translation Day as usual.
