How can we show our translators and editors that we really appreciate them? Apr 12, 2012

We want to make sure that the freelancers we work with realise that we appreciate them.
e.g.: most of our freelancers will work outside businesss hours and even in weekends. We are really grateful and want them to know that.
For us, it is very important that the bond between us is strong and open. Therefore, we try to be not too informal and stay in contact even when there is no work for them.
Do you have any tips for us? We are also thinking about giving our translators more feedback. But because we depend on the editor's decision, it is difficult to give the right feedback. How could we improve our way of feedback and really implement this in our daily routine?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, you seem to have a very human approach of the profession and of the relationships with translators.
Sincerely, it is the best, and the most heart-warming, message that I've ever read for a long time

What about a blog or newsletter to maintain the contact ?

Have a nice evening
Catherine

This human approach is what makes the business-freelancer 'bond' really 'strong'. Social events, blogs, newsletters, training sessions on new tools, etc. will make it even stronger. Thank you from a veteran translator/interpreter.
