Agencies I am working with Sep 1, 2010

Thank to this news, many of agencies I am working with are in this list. Expect their ever growing performances and continual contacts. This is an evidence that translation industry is ever growing although technologies may offset human translators. In Proz forum last year, we discussed on less-than-average growing of translation enterprises if compared with other listing businesses (e.g. technical services, finance, marketing) of the securities exchange. I am dreaming of one or two listed translation agencies with remarkable profits in Wall Street or NASDAQ.

Just a short comment re "Go figure":

From my own experience with them, they are an excellent outsourcer. I believe that in 90% cases the problems are on the translators' side.

There's a vote of confidence for the individual translators on proz's membership list. And from a moderator no less.

More than one unpleasant experience with this particular agency confirms my my view that
i) it is always a good idea to check with independent resources before getting involved with any LSP
ii) see title above.
