Ola, que tema maravilhoso! Além de ser extremamente interessante é um assunto bastante vasto. Mas queria tirar uma duvida, para os ouvintes que não sabem inglês irá ter algum áudio tradutor transmitido no momento da palestra para os participantes? Desde já, fica meus agradecimentos.

    Olá, Thalya, como vai? O idioma oficial do congresso é o inglês e, até o momento, não está prevista tradução simultânea para as atividades. Acompanhe-nos nas redes sociais para ver as novidades e quem sabe teremos essa opção até lá! Felicidades e seja bem-vinda!
