"I'd love to be mentored by her. Her experience shows and she is a great coach. And very German: straight to the point, no BS, no unnecessary info. Spoke mostly neutral of all what is available and her own experience. "
"Irene was excellent, she definitely knows what she's talking about and I surely took away a few things I didn't expect or think about. She also addressed the individual questions in details and with examples which was very helpful."
"The trainer obviously has a lot of knowledge, she's clearly an expert in the field. Unfortunately her presentation of the slides didn't add much to the content of the slides, since she almost literaly read the text out loud. She would do better to comment on the text, adding some more practical information, like her experience on translations, false friends, common mistakes, etc."
"Her style of presentation was a little rushed and, even for an hour and a half, there was a huge amount of quite detailed information. Slides were sometimes shown very quickly and then skipped over. She also had a tendency to simply read the slides rather than talk about them more fully and failed to answer some questions fully."
"Irene is an amazing trainer and, from my experience during her webinar, she is a phenomenal translator! She knows about the best practices: from security and confidentiality to best project management software. She answers all the questions with ease and clarity and provides further information in case something was not available or mentioned in the presentation. I look forward to joining more webinars!"
"The trainer was very clear in her descriptions and explanations. I only missed inputs regarding definitions and/or purposes of some sections. For exemple, a brief description of the meaning of the different (translation) services identified (slide 37 or approximately)"
"The organisation and delivery of the material were clear. Ms. Koukia handled with skill and calm the practical problems and interruptions caused by technical hitches and one or two students having difficulty seeing or hearing on their systems. "
"It was very clear and organized. It is obvious that Irene masters the topic. I liked the fact that the expenses issue was dealt with at each occasion. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge, Irene."
"Irene has been very clear in her explanations, giving relevant, very useful information on the topics that concern to beginners. Definitely she goes to the point using an encouraging speech. Thank you!"
"Thank you, Irene, for this introduction. I appreciate your deep and wide knowledge and experience in this area. I will definitively use the information provided in the PowerPoint slides. The only point I was dissatisfied with in this course was that it was not so much an overview as more a demonstration of some specific features, too much into details."
"Thanks a lot for a very interesting training. It was my first on ProZ.com. Although I am used to writing applications in different languages I got to know some more interesting details I will keep in mind or look up. It was also important to see how it is done on this platform. Being in business for a while, I guess, sometimes such a reminder on how to sell yourself is extremely helpful, particularly as we share the same language groups (EN,DE+ others). I'm surely dropping in on one of your next seminars."
"First of all, thanks Irene, for sharing your knowledge with us - that was great! However, as there was so much information, it was a bit confusing at times. You clearly have a lot of knowledge but I feel it is was not always equally easy to bring it across."
"She has been talking for almost two hours, answering all our questions and she has done does with pleasure. She has a wide knowledge of this field of expertise. Moreover, she speaks slowly and it's easy to follow her explanations. "
"Irene was very forthcoming with her information. She replied to all the questions and took a step further in elaborating in the answers, explaining the reason behind her response. I can't thank her enough for this webinar."
"The trainer was very good and professional. The only negative remark was to the Q&A section, which I hoped it would have been more Reading the question & Answering out loud for everyone instead of replying individually."
"Irene Koukia is a very approachable person from what I could see and hear, and she shared her valuable ideas and resources with us. I like the way she went into details such as how to present oneself, or where to find a free CAT tool, giving all sorts of links. I would like to thank her for opening my eyes as there are lots of things I didn't realize I could do on my own, such as getting a specialisation free of charge! I can't wait for the release of the recording of the course to go through all the info and get my profile sorted out properly. Thank you, Irene!"
"I was extremely satisfied with the way Mrs. Irene Koukia made her presentation. She gave a thorough and easy to comprehend introduction for beginner translators. I especially enjoyed her frank manner and the encouraging comments at the end of her presentation."
