» Prove what you know!
By Verlow Woglo Junior | Published 10/4/2014 | Business of Translation and Interpreting | Recommendation:
Translators are, by the nature of their work and experience, linguists, technicians, researchers, scientists, writers, consultants and scholars - with or without formal training. So, if clients want a super qualified translator, they should also know that it does not come cheap. College and continuing education are expensive, and translators, by experience alone, are sometimes as qualified as any diploma bearing technician, college graduate or expert of any given field of knowledge or trade.
