The HPEI is a personality questionnaire.

In this 20-minutes webinar, cApStAn’s CEO Steve Dept and the project’s lead manager Danina Lupsa take you through the project scope, the challenges and the entire translation history of two items, step by step. A very concrete exercise that will give you insight in this complex translation design.
