Summary:To be clear, this webinar does not only talk about the problems a translator can face during working at a project. You will learn how to be prepared when any kind of problem turns up. In most cases it is rather the fear of a problem that hinders us to live up to our full potentials. This will be changed after this course as you will be able to write your own destiny.
Description
Freelancers experience all kind of problems as we are business owners, employees, and have different roles in our private lives. That given, some problems are more certain and some can hit us pretty unprepared. But they have all in common that they cause a lot of stress and are highly unwelcomed.

The aim of this webinar is to help you to define the real challenges and the feared ones. You will learn how to work against the fear and know that you will be prepared whenever any kind of problem crosses your path.
