As an entrepreneur/independent translator the company's we're doing translations for are supposed to be consider what exactly?
Well without ceremony here is my question:
Who should send gift to who for the holidays?
Translators to their clients or the agencies to their translators?
I am slightly confused as of my status can anybody help???

When I was a PM, I received a couple of merry Xmas cards, but no presents. I heard from colleagues that some translators sent chocolates.
Personally I'm going to stick to Xmas cards for my most regular/important clients. That's already more than most people will do I think.

With my business hat on: I am sending Christmas postcards to most clients this year, and small gifts (not chocolates, but in a similar vein) to my bigger clients and a couple folks whose recommendations brought me some business. It's a small gesture for their contribution to my bottom line, and a nice way to remind them that I am still investing in myself as a professional translator. Since I focus on working with smaller businesses and developing personal relationships with PMs, rather than simply being a name in a database, this fits in well with my business model.
On a personal note: I just like Christmas! This is a fun time of year for me, and I enjoy sending handwritten notes to people. It's a negligible outlay to make people I work with smile.
