Who we are

The company offers high-quality online training and webinars to help translators, interpreters and other professional linguists develop their careers and run their businesses efficiently and profitably. We organise special online training courses for in-depth study, as well as more general on-line webinar training for all levels of translator and interpreter.

eCPD Webinars was set up in 2010 by Lucy Brooks. The aim and philosophy of the company is to provide online access to high quality training courses and presentations designed especially for translators and interpreters. For various reasons (family commitments, distance etc.) many translators find it difficult to attend face-to-face events and eCPD was formed to fill the void that such translators face.


Lucy Brooks is a qualified translator. Her credentials include Chartered Linguist, Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, and qualified member of ITI in the UK. As a translator, she understands the need for CPD for her peers. She was joined in 2012 by Maia Figueroa, a highly acclaimed literary translator based in Spain. Maia has added her own imprint to the programme.


In April 2015 the pair were joined by Marta Stelmaszak. She is responsible for a new and more functional website and the streamlined booking process. She is also responsible for new business development.

What we do

eCPD Webinars enables busy and committed professionals in language-related industries to learn from the top experts in their field and to improve their careers, all from the comfort of their home or office.

We do this in two ways:

  • By offering a programme of relevant events directly to individual linguists.
  • By organising and promoting events on behalf of organisations and companies.

eCPD Webinars is dedicated to language professionals and to anyone working in the language industry, including translators, interpreters, terminologists, project managers and those working in areas such as localisation, subtitling, and technical writing.

  • Our company is run by language professionals for language professionals.
  • Our speakers are drawn from a pool of experts in their field.
  • Our events currently attract attendees from all over Europe, North America, South America and Australasia.
  • We are regular contributors to key industry publications on topics related to professional development for translators and interpreters.
  • We are the only company to run online events on behalf of the American Translators Association and others.
