The Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council has just launched a new website dedicated to providing access to ongoing educational programs for language professionals. There are currently four courses available: Introduction to CAT Tools, Introduction to Globalization and International Trade, Introduction to Finding Translation Clients, and The Justice System in Canada.

You can find the website at www.cttic-edu.ca, and there should be at least one face familiar to LTD members. 😀
