    Hey friends!

    I hope you’re having a lovely day!

    Here’s the recording of a wonderful webinar that we had with Jo Rourke a couple of weeks ago. Jo had this great idea of ending her year on a high note, and this is how she came up with a wonderful initiative called Challenge500.

    This initiative has helped hundreds of translators achieve more and get a better understanding of their business and their role in the market. Check out the recordings or the highlights below to learn more.
