The incomparable Judy Jenner of Twin Translations joins us on 20 October to talk about ways to protect yourself to ensure that you won't suffer from defaulting clients. In other words, we'll cover getting paid as a translator. The speaker will present some strong tools and strategies that should put you in a very strong position to get paid for each and every single project you take on, as well as tools that can help you research whether the customer you are about to work for is creditworthy. Essentially, translators give free credit to their customers by agreeing to get paid after they finish their work.
I fully support this movement. Translators right now meet with frequent non-paying agencies. It is painful while cyberspace is in progress.
Why not protect ourselves before offering professional services globally?
