Very good, to the point presentation. Very informative and clear. Thanks so much for the resources provided!
I found that it only took the presenter about 35 minutes to cover the contents of the course and then the other 35 minutes were used to answer questions or make comments. This did not meet my expectations, as I was hoping for something more thorough. The material was ok although a little scarce.
I did appreciate the clarification regarding the two activities. However (sigh), the materials, including the PPT and the manual, contain many 'typos' and the sample translation provided to demonstrate editing is just not a good translation of the source text from German to English. I hate to be so 'picky' as I know the trainer has many years of experience but if this is a presentation about proof-reading...shouldn't the actual course materials have been proof-read as well?
A useful introduction for beginner proofreaders/editors. The webinar's Q&A session is included in the video, and Elke was so kind as to email me the Reference Manual she created on the basis of the 2012 webinar and Q&A session. (Webinar attendees received this manual automatically).
