"Paolo had a very effective teaching style and he explained all his points in a very clear, succinct way. I would definitely sign up for further training sessions in future if I knew he were facilitating them."
"You can tell that the trainer has some experience. He also managed to balance between the different points of view, which was definitely helpful. However, his presentation was very repetitive; he spent a lot of time on unnecessary details and didn't seem to have prepared the webinar very well.
Although friendly and professional, I don't think teaching is the ideal career path for Mr. Sebastiani.
"Our trainer Paolo speaks very clearly so that non native English speaker can get all the content. The rythme is constant and help keep concentrating. All attendees had personalized feedback from the direct chat comments, even with some reformulation. And his voice is very clear. His experimentation of post-editing thought the 2 CAT tools screencating made us feel like we we're doing it by ourselves."
"The trainer's delivery was clear and well structured, except on a couple of times when he perhaps dwelt too long on a given point and I ended up losing my concentration as a result.
I loved the fact that the trainer constantly interacted with the attendees and had the flexibility to answer the numerous questions along the way whilst maintaining the continuity of his presentation by picking up where he had left.
Paolo also tried to do his best to solve one of the attendees' communication problems, although I felt at the time that he shouldn't have to do that as it took the focus off the training session for a while."
"Paolo gave a very clear and thorough presentation. I think the few times it dragged a little when he was trying to figure out why something hadn't worked were because of the newness of WF Pro 4. He clearly knows all the fine points of how many kinds of CAT tools work. I greatly appreciated his willingness to answer all questions in detail and even to repeat the question and repeat his answer, to make sure we got it. I'll be contacting him with some follow-up questions. Great webinar, great trainer!"
"Paolo was very easy to follow and the Power Point visuals helped a lot. I was also impressed with his ability to answer participants' questions on the spot and then return to his presentation even if the questions were slightly off the argument he was working on. Very flexible and accommodating -- thank you!"
"He has good knowledge of the subject. Even some of the "technical" difficulties he encountered along the way made it so I can have an idea of what to expect when I do it on my own, without becoming discouraged at the first bump in the road."
Thanks you for a very comprehensive insight. The fact that you operate all these CATs is sensational, but the way of explaining it is revealing, especially for non-geeks (like me).
I have been asked to use other CATs besides the one I use to work with certain agencies on file-based TMs and hopefully this will bridge the gap. your webinar is a very worthwhile investment from any point of view.
"Excellent training, very skilled and personable teacher. Dr Sebastiani clearly has a thorough comprehension of Wordfast and is very good at explaining how to use it in a manner that everyone can understand. I really enjoyed his webinar!"
"I took level 1, used Wordfast PRO for a few months, and then took level 2. Paolo is a wonderful trainer! He takes his time to explain everything in a very methodical, clear, and precise manner. He explains it in a way so that everybody can understand it without being boring. Had I known what I know now, I would not have waited that long to start using a CAT tool. THANK YOU, PAOLO!!!"
"The explanations were very slow and repetitive, and the voice went off at a number of key points in the video. But he knows his subject well, obviously, though it could have taken half the time to teach the material. Also, a few times a 'no, not correct' type of answer is not enough."
"Thank you, Paolo! Your instructions were quite clear and your immediate response to questions posed very helpful. the software seems to be somewhat complex in its setup, si your repetitions were necessary. "
"From all the Trados webinars I have attended, this one was by far the best! Paolo has great communication skills. He conducted this seminar at the right pace. His elocution is very good. His calm manner is very helpful too."
"I don't want to be nasty or offensive in anyway, but you should make sure that the trainer has really a mother tongue level when training offered in a certain language by a non-native. I will surely never book a training in French anymore. "
"The speaker gave us his email and Skype address and I am planning to get in tough to ask my doubts. He was very helpful. I has enjoyed the fact that the course was held in Italian. It helps when the program is already so complicated and all the material online and in the program itself (Help, etc) are all in English."
"The course provided me with some interesting bits of information on how to use Wordfast Pro to manage TMs and align two documents. But there is some information missing such as how to merge TMs, which is barely explained or how export Wordfast TM's to other CAT tools or how to import other CAT tool TMs into Wordfast. The import is explained but not much.
In general, I found this course to be very basic and not very well organized. "
"I found the webinar very useful and the trainer's approach excellent. Everything was carried out very logically and there was no diverging into unnecessary detail or information. The webinar put everything in focus and right after the session, I was even able to start off with a new translation project using WF. Thank you Paolo for being such a good teacher and I expect that I will be signing up for the second course."
"Paolo's presentation was clear and detailed. At times, it could have been a little more succinct and time-efficient, but otherwise I feel encouraged to start using my Wordfast immediately. He made it look much easier than I expected it to be."
""Somewhat satisfied" because Sebastiano did not always activate the screens, making us wasting times. 5-minute pauses not respected. In those aspects the other trainer "Konstantin Kisin" is more organised. "
"I've had Wordfast installed for over a year and never used it before because I was scared of it. Paolo's explanations were very clear. I would love to take an intermediate course after I put into practice what I learned. "
"I think Paolo is a nice professional person, personally I would advise him not to show so much of his personal files and confidential infos in the course of webinars. Maybe he could have used a separate HD"
