  1. dear sir....
    i really find this blog very help full and very informative about the translation, thanks to share the information, and i hope that every one will find it very help full

  2. I will definitely be there. I don't think I'll have anything to present given I still work on my PhD and does not have the capacity to start a new project, but it seems like a great opportunity for networking.

  3. Dear Nazia and Tolken,

    Thank you for your encouragement. And from two such different parts of the world. It would be nice to meet you in person at Forlì.
