    "Be Special in a Nutshell" Oct 1, 2011

    Suzanne Deliscar's 'Be Special II' is a clear, straightforward and easy to understand audio course that I found very helpful in pointing out the many ways in which we as translators/linguists can improve our overall reach and effectiveness within the industry.
    Well worth the 30 minutes invested,
