Thanks in advance

Hi @Mariangelesm,
the most important diffeence between the two is that only th “Introduction…” will give you a final certificate.
I hope this helps!:herb:

I have just completed the course and wanted to thank you for the training provided. My previous occupations often required me to translate documents, but as I’m not a qualified translator I felt like a training course was much needed before starting to volunteer for TWB! This intro to translation definitely provided a lot of useful information.
Plus it was a nice surprise to see Moodle as the chosen e-learning platform, as I’ve spent four years using it for uni.
Now looking forward to taking the other two courses :slightly_smiling_face:

Hello, I’m just coming to the end of the course. It’s been a really great introduction, both to the general framework of translation in a humanitarian context, and to the scope of TWB’s activities, and to how the Kató platform functions. I signed up a long time ago, but I didn’t really get the hang of it. Now I’m motivated to explore the platform in more depth, and hopefully put my language pairs to use :grin:

All done - and got my certificate :sweat_smile:
It was really worthwhile and well-thought out, for such a short course. I’ve set myself quiet time this weekend to explore the platform, finish my profile, and get a better feel for the interface. Hope to be interacting and contributing soon!

Edit: One thing I would say about some of the course content (specifically, some of the videos) is that where there was text on the screen, it was very small and/or blurred, and hard to read. I don’t know if that’s because of my screen settings, or if it’s a general observation. But in most cases it was fine, because most of the videos were available on YouTube :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m delighted to have successfully completed this course today. I thought it gave a very useful overview of humanitarian translation as well as helpful, practical details on using the platform.

I look forward to contributing my translation skills to the work of TWB in due course.
