Continuing Professional Development is important to me and I am always keen to hone my skills in my specialist areas by taking training courses. I also attend conferences, seminars and trade fairs concerning both translation and maritime affairs. Of course, I also keep up to date on my specialist fields by reading relevant magazines and journals.
