I found the course very enlightening, interesting and useful. It is not intended to turn you into a specialist in the field of translation, but it sure broadens one's horizons and provides a lot of insight into the different aspects of translation, both as a profession and part of life for many people. To me, as a translator who is new to the profession, it was particularly helpful to gain a more detailed idea of codes of conduct, principles, practices and what things are like in different corners of the world.
Moreover, through the small assignments and reference materials, the course prompted me to seek information and find many useful resources.
Nowadays we have constant access to all sorts of information, but what's awesome about this course is that it gives you a synthesized, summarized and structured volume of information presented in an engaging and easy-to-process manner.
