Last week, Wordsmith University conducted a TRADOS training for freelance translators. The training programme was successful because of the following reasons
1. We wanted the programme to be intimate, informal, relaxed and full of substance rather than distant, one-directional, formal and costly and more frills than value.
2. Our associate Prime Infoserv, one of the leading System Integrating and Consulting Company kindly lent their Conference Hall which was just the ambient environment we needed : quiet, compact and one to one interaction. We limited the number of entries and that made it possible for the training to become intense and beamed.
3. Mr. Pinaki Talukder, translator, agency owner and trados expert taught how to handle the tool, interrupted by a traditional Bengali lunch. It was great to drink coffee overlooking the Salt Lake skyline in the evening in the break as buses plied lazily in the road towards South.
I spoke mostly about business development for freelancers and how to write effective marketing emails.
