Be more specific Mar 3, 2003

Hi maksita,

I think your chances of getting helpful resources will be increased if you can be a bit more specific: what exactly are you looking to do, and where exactly are you looking for help?



Good luck, Ralf



PS Not sure what your \"common message\" reference means...

Сначала советую посмотреть форумы на этом сайте, особенно \"Getting established\" и \"Being independent\", ´\"Money Matters\" плюс русский форум.Все форумы именно для того и существуют? чтобы каждый сам проконсультировался, насколько ему это удастся.



Потом поищите через Proz&Agencies коллег, с которыми, врозможно, сможете лично пообщаться, потому что они не так далеко живут.



Я бы так начал, если б чувствовал скбя неуверенным.

Enlargement Mar 4, 2003

With enlargement of the EU next year Lithuanian is suddenly going to be in demand. Start smartening up your CV now and send it off to agencies that have regular work from the European Commmission, etc. (how to discover whether or not they have is another thing of course).



Best

hi Maksita, Mar 4, 2003

in Steffen\'s mail I only read question marks, but he is referring to categories in ProZ \"Discussion Forums\". Hope that helps!

Bye,

Martin
