Welcome to LION Translation Academy, where every course is designed to empower you as a translator to unleash your inner lion and ROAR! In today's fast-changing world, it can be hard to keep up with all the newfangled tech tools out there, make sure that our translations are idiomatic in an era of high demands and instantaneous communication, and figure out how to market our services when we tend to be on the shy and introverted side. As translation trainer with over a decade of experience, I have made it my life's mission to help translators thrive and excel in all these areas. It has been my distinct privilege to train for such organizations as Training for Translators, ITI, OTTIAQ, Editors Canada, the Translation Bureau, Magistrad, and many others. My commitment is to give you the tools to effect profound positive change in your career as a translator. Rest assured that I'll be helping you every step of the way! Click the courses below to find out more and register today—and join the hundreds of satisfied translators from all over the world who have taken LION webinars to propel their productivity, language skills, and business prowess to new heights.
