Dear Translators,

This link leads to an interesting and humorous article about pricing strategies and client education.

It is based on personal experience.

Learn and enjoy.

Thanks for the link !

I'm sure more seasonned translators will already have comme across this paper. As for me it's a first-time read and I particularly enjoyed the typology of discounts
