I recently registered with a translation company online and they sent me a nondisclosure/confidentiality agreement to sign and return.



I don\'t mind signing it and I understand these days confidentiality is quite important in the translation/interpreting business but I wonder whether this is a standard procedure.



I would like to know what you think about this.

Yes, it's standard Jan 14, 2003

Hi,



It is standard for some agencies to ask freelancers to sign a confidentiality agreement.



HTH,



Erika

Thank you, Erika. Jan 14, 2003

I just realised there are many questions at proz about this topic.

Thanks again.

Welcome, Simona, and yes, Jan 15, 2003

I would say this is a fairly standard practise.



I often outsource projects myself to (mainly)ProZ members and after a few rather nasty experiences, I decided to work only with people who signed my Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA).

You are definitely right, Evert Jan 15, 2003

Of course, I understand it is a necessary safety measure (unfortunately you never know these days!).



Thanks.

Simona
