Types of courses
Freelancers & Companies
The best way to master a new software is via learning by doing. Onsite courses are therefore generally preferable due to the benefits of hands-on learning and the more active participation of the trainees.
The course programmes on onsite courses are either standardised or customised, depending on your preferences. Click on COURSE PROGRAMMES below for detailed descriptions of standardised Course Programmes.
An onsite course takes place at a company’s or freelancer’s premises. My premises in the south of Spain are offered as an alternative venue. For more information on this option, please click here.
Freelancers & Companies
Online courses offer the benefit of flexibility. The number of trainees can be higher and no travel is required. The learning environment used to be less active but with today’s screensharing platforms interactive teaching with virtual hands-on guidance is now possible. You will therefore gain a good overview of the software’s functionality, enough for you to continue the learning yourself after the end of the course, using the training materials and manuals provided.
The course programmes are either standardised or customised, depending entirely on your preferences. Click on COURSE PROGRAMMES below for detailed descriptions of standardised Course Programmes.
Freelancers & Companies
Open courses welcome all trainees. Although mainly aimed at freelance translators, employed translators and project managers are also very welcome. These courses are held in Antas, Copenhagen, Manchester and Malaga. Details of dates and venues will be listed in the Course Calendar, which you get to by clicking on BOOK A COURSE below.
On Open Courses, you can benefit from the networking opportunities of a classroom setting as well as the possibility of interacting with your fellow trainees. Click on COURSE PROGRAMMES below for detailed descriptions on the standardised Course Programmes.

Torregrosa Language Services
Lone is an excellent CAT tools trainer. Her knowledge and expertise have been extremely useful to me in the last few years. I am very happy to recommend her to those in need of “keeping up” with developments. They will find her very approachable and generous with her time.
Amparo Torregrosa from Torregrosa Language Services hired Lone Beheshty as a Personal Trainer more than once.
Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity.
Midland Technical Translations (UK) Ltd.
Lone did some training for us today – we got answers to all our questions and great, easy to follow demonstrations which have helped us get the best out of our software tools. She was patient, knowledgeable and great fun to work with – highly recommended if you need one to one training.
Sue Clark from Midland Technical Translations (UK) Ltd. hired Lone Beheshty as an IT Consultant.
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert.
Owner, Translator at Fagsprog
I have known Lone since 2013, and over the last seven years, I have invited Lone to my house on average twice a year for customised memoQ training sessions. After the initial couple of beginner’s courses, we started to concentrate on specific features, which would be particularly useful to me in my work as a legal translator. I very much value Lone’s clear step by step teaching approach as well as her patience. After having regular courses with Lone, I now see myself as a confident memoQ user, who can use a wide variety of the many functionality options. I therefore highly recommend Lone’s training services.
Dr. Maria José Wyborn
M Wyborn Consultancy Ltd.
I have trained with Lone for MemoQ and also for Trados because I know that she is very knowledgeable in these fields and that, being a translator herself, she also understands our difficulties and points of view. Even after the training Lone was always ready to help, if I encountered any difficulties. I strongly recommend the one-to-one training with Lone to anyone that needs to grasp quickly and effortlessly the basics of TM.
Dr. Suzanne Kirkbright
Artes Translations, UK
Excellent course. The tutor was very interactive and able to respond to questions that were often beyond what the course would have been expected to cover… It was interesting to have a tutor who knew the software developers and gave us contact!…The training exceeded my expectations!
Translation Coordinator, Radiometer Medical
It is important to know what the needs are and adapt the course to these. This was the reason why this course succeeded successfully. Very motivating training perfectly adapted to our needs.

I liked the hands-on approach and learning from participants’ questions. Thank you for an excellent training session!
Owner, NITRANS, Northern Ireland
Lone is an excellent trainer. Her training session was clearly structured and easy to follow. She was also very good at answering any questions participants had, particularly given the time constraints and limitations of online training, and overall had a very pleasant manner. I would definitely attend one of her training sessions again!
