Continuing professional development

When working as a translator, no two days are the same, and most of my projects require specialized knowledge and intercultural competence.

In order to deliver the most relevant and up-to-date results to my clients, I stay on top of the latest trends and developments in my areas of expertise, translation technology, software, marketing, and legal requirements. On this page I mention some of my ongoing CPD achievements from my fields of specializations, or from other fields I am personally interested in, or just for fun:
