"My favourite parts of the course were the Translation Practices; I could practice a lot and enjoyed applying the learned knowledge. Excellent service, good advice and helpful contacts. Thank you very much! I liked the course very much and enjoyed it."

"During the session my Language Partner explained everything in such good detail that as a result I think I should now easily overcome the problems I had with translation in the past. I found the learning process very challenging and stimulating. As I am at the beginning of my learning, I find the whole process enjoyable. The most useful was the feedback from the written assignments and the Skype Session."
"My favourite part of the course was all the Translation Practices, especially the semi-specialised ones."
"I took the linguisttraining.com online preparation course for the DipTrans exam last year and after sitting the exam in January this year, I was thrilled to pass with a Pass, Merit and Distinction.
I think that for me, what really made the course stand out was the amount of additional reading materials that are linked to, many of which I found extremely interesting and would not necessarily have chanced upon while doing my own research. Also, I found the course very concise and easy to follow while still packing in a lot of useful information. I would definitely recommend it if I had friends who were linguistically-minded, and I decided to do the DipTrans preparation course with Linguist Training too based on my satisfaction with the FCT course. Thanks in any case, for all of the support that I received throughout the DipTrans preparation course: I would not have been able to approach the exam with such a strong level of confidence had I not taken the course, and I am sure that taking the course is part of what helped me to gain a Merit and a Distinction in two of the units."
"I enjoyed doing the exam past papers. I found it very useful to have feedback on my translation quality from a professional translator, which I’ve never had before."
"I searched on the internet for a thorough programme about translation, and contacted a selection of companies, but to no avail (lack of details or not even a reply!). My partner found linguisttraining.com and passed it on me. What made the difference was the obvious seriousness of your company and the fact that you replied very quickly and have been more than helpful in everything I needed since then."
"Very useful specific information throughout the course. Section 4 and 8 were particularly helpful, as were the related links. That information helped me to understand what the profession might involve in specific cases."
"This course has been extremely useful for me. This is my first e-Learning course and it has surpassed my expectations. The course is well structured, organised and easy to follow. They are extremely professional, ethical, courteous and kind people. Interacting with my Language Partner has been the most useful and enjoyable part of the course and the Skype Session, likewise. They customised my access in such a useful way, so that I did not have to postpone the course while I was away from home for three weeks, under difficult conditions for internet access. I am very grateful! Most useful: the course structure, the professionalism and ethics of linguisttraining.com and of my language partner; the proof reading of my homework assignments and precise observations and recommendations made on flaws detected, stemming from the very first homework assignment, were both useful and enjoyable. I was sincerely happy to learn from these and applied them immediately! It helped me improve my translation ability and the quality of the translated text, which became evident in the grading attained in the two homework assignments completed afterwards. My Language Partner is a very talented professional with very good communications skills and impressed me as an extremely transparent and honest person, which is a superb add-on to her professional values. I learned a lot from her."
