Productivity for translators: links from IMTT Conference presentation

First of all, I apologize for taking so long to post the links. Too much work, too little time. For those who attended my presentation, I also apologize for my lack of enthusiasm during the presentation. I was feeling really sick that day, lost all the morning presentations and even thought I couldn’t deliver mine.

Anyway, here are the links I promised:

    Oi, Val! Adorei da palestra! Obrigada pelos links. Eu nem percebi “a falta de entusiasmo”. Tomara que tenha gostado da Argentina. Daiana

    Oi Val,
    your presentation was great, very helpful for me as a PM, really eye opener. You didn’t look sick at all, I didn’t feel you were unenthusiatic at all!! I was waiting to have all this link in one place as I didn’t write down notes.
    Many thanks!!
