Demystifying MS Word
Emmy Prieto is our first event of the year. Translators have a special relationship with text editors: the quicker you navigate through commands and repetitive text, the quicker you will convert your work into money. The fastest you do that, the more money you get.
Who better than another translator to guide you? Well, how about a technical writer who specializes in teaching those tricks around the world, and
who happens to be also a translator?

Meet Emmy Prieto and learn about her 6-hour MS Word workshop, the first in a three-installment Boot Camp that will cover the whole Office 2010 Suite.

Registration is open: $20 members and $30 non-members. Click here to learn more about Emmy and the workshop. And don't forget to REGISTER! 
2015 Events - Q1
We have a lot more in store for you:.
