Translated Educational Materials
Translated educational materials are available only as downloadable files from the COPDF website. Due to the high cost of international shipping the only option for printed educational materials is a one-time flat rate purchase of high-resolution electronic printer’s files on CD from which the purchaser is permitted to print their own translated educational materials.
