As a locally based translator, marketing is always a tough job for me. China does not have internationally or even nationally recognized accredition program, for us quality is always undervaluated.



I wonder if you are interested as me in such ranking. It must be a big sale among freelance translators.

Top 100 by what criteria? Apr 23, 2002

This doesn\'t really sound practicable to me. Who would decide who the top 100 are? It sounds pretty subjective to me. If you mean the 100 biggest, these aren\'t necessarily the best agencies for the translator to work for. If you follow lists such as TCR and Payment Practices, you\'ll notice that big companies who have bought out other agencies often have major cash flow problems.



Although it occurs to me in mentioning the PP list that the former moderator of that list, Karin Adamczyk, used to sell a data base of agencies that had received favourable reports on the list. If this is what you\'re interested in, maybe it\'s still available from Karin (I think she\'s a member of ProZ).

Thank you Margaret Doney for the feedback. You raised a good question. I\'m expecting an independent organization to do such ranking. I\'m interested in purchasing the database to market myself.



For the TCR, and PP I do not know much, so I can not make any comments.
