*Free* Webinar

Webinar is full!

Dear translator and interpreter

Thank you for your interest on my free webinar Coronavirus Fundamentals for Translators and Interpreters. The 

platform I use lets me register 1,000 people and, unfortunately, it is currently at capacity.

Reliable information about coronavirus is very critical right now and I'm trying to give access to as many translators and interpreters as possible. As you well know, the incorrect term can cause much harm. That is why I'm teaching this webinar completely free of charge. 

What I can offer you is access to the replay so at least you do not miss out on the information I will share. 

You can also have access to the information I share in my  Facebook group: Medical Translation and Interpreting Crew.

Thank you for your understanding!


Coronavirus Fundamentals for Translators and Interpreters

Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has taken most of us by surprise. It has put our lives on hold and our health in danger. Now, more than ever, information has to be transmitted faster in different languages to slow down and control this pandemic.


Translators and interpreters play key roles and support diverse players during these difficult times. Our services are needed by both small businesses up to governmental agencies and everything in between. They rely on us to communicate with people and help them navigate this health crisis . 

During this *free* two-hour webinar you will learn the fundamental:

  • Information about Coronavirus and COVID-19
  • Terminology of common signs and symptoms
  • Reliable medical resources for later

In short, I will share the fundamental terminology and resources every translator and interpreter should use.

Stay healthy,

I have attended several of Gloria's webinars, and would like to thank her for the well prepared, educational, useful, interesting, and language neutral subjects that she has presented all in an interactive format with a pinch of good humor thrown in... I'll definitely be enrolling in the next one and getting the needed CEUs to maintain my certification as a Healthcare Interpreter (Arabic).

Gloria is the kind of instructor you would hope for: she makes learning fun, interactive and useful. I feel like I have better tools for my complicated interpreting encounters, thanks to someone who has the knowledge and experience, who is also willing to share.
