Great webinar! But I am confused... I signed up yesterday (3-4-16), but the slides and the video are from July 2015. Will I be getting access to a new LIVE version? If not, can I watch all 5 this weekend, or do I need to wait for each separately? Christian Nielsen-Palacios

Nice talk, but green writing on a blue background was difficult to read.

I personally consider it very useful not only for freelancers just making entering the wonderful world of linguistic service but for all the professional considering to swap the 40-hour in-house schedule for something more flexible. And it's not just the content full of really good tips but also the easy and absorbing form of narration that make it highly advisable for all those fascinated with languages.
