Formatting in Microsoft Word and Securing your CV
For a translator, formatting as a skill is like note taking for an interpreter: the translator may have their own way of getting the job done, but it is always beneficial to learn new techniques and find new approaches to integrate with your own. The first half of this webinar will look at different ways documents and specifically scanned image files can be re-created in Microsoft Word, and why one method would be preferred over another in order to optimize them for seamless importing and exporting into CAT tools such as SDL Studio, MemoQ, etc. The second half will recap Translator scammers, their tactics, and how to take a CV formatted in Microsoft Word and protect yourself from translator scammers.
