The translation project management workshop impresses with a balanced relationship between theory and practice, good organization and a great location. The trainer took questions 100% into account. The workshop became very lively due to the mutual exchange between the participants. Altogether a very practice-oriented workshop and therefore valuable for me and my daily business. I will recommend the workshop because it created transparency for the entire process workflow, gave ideas for new approaches and opened my eyes to new technologies.

During the workshop, the problems related to translation project management were very well summed up and we worked on various solution suggestions. The trainer obviously has a lot of experience in this area and was able to answer questions competently. The relation between theory and practical exercises was balanced and the group size was very pleasant. I will recommend the workshop at any time, as I really got a lot of ideas for my daily work and I am totally satisfied.
