Dear Sirs,

Thanks for your interest in the training. Indeed, the session will be recorded. Even if you do not attend the live session you will still have unlimited access to the webinar video and handouts shortly after the webinar (within one working week). You can watch it as many times and when it is needed.

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen

So if I understand correctly, the video for this session will eventually become available here (http://www.proz.com/translator-training/format/videos) even for those who didn't attend the session? I'm very interested in the topic, but I didn't even know this was happening until it was over.
