In this 4-week course, you will look behind the scenes of procrastination and work in a small peer group to finally take your big business projects to the next level. $299 with various discounts available.
- Direct client marketing…for people who think they can’t, a three-hour master class, runs from 12 noon to 3 PM New York time on Thursday, January 7 (recording provided after the session).

- Into-English patent translation, a four-week course with expert patent translator Martin Cross, starts on Monday, January 11. Patent translation is a well-paid specialization and a growing market segment, but even experienced technical translators can find patents hard to understand and can be unsure of the legal considerations involved. This course is intended for translators working from any language into English who have an interest in science and technology and want to start translating patents or improve their patent translation skills. $365 with various discounts available.
