Did you know that Proz.com is not only a marketplace for freelance translators? One of the website’s best features is its offering of training resources which include self-paced and one-on-one courses, videos, webinars, a translation industry wiki, and books. It’s well worth a look!

This coming week Proz.com is holding a series of free webinars. The main focus is technology, with webinars on Across, SDL Studio 2015, Déjà Vu, TM Town, memoQ, CafeTran and other tools. Other topics include meeting clients and terminology management. Have a look at the schedule and let me know if you’re planning on attending a session. They’re free of charge after all!

The downside is that you’ll have to wake up early – or stay up all night – if you’re based on this side of the world. The events are scheduled for American and European audiences, which makes it difficult for those based in New Zealand and Australia to attend… If only these were Rugby World Cup games!
