Cost cutting in Europe Aug 4, 2010

I understand that the recent economic trouble of EU makes European countries to tighten the public budgets. As a freelance translator, I feel it strongly affects our career since rare job orders are given by those countries. In previous years, I did many European jobs even under the Hamburger crisis.
