I am a linguist and a C# developer, The Creator of Bohemicus, a productivity-improving tool for translators and writers


is a LinkedIn article I wrote about my experience developing a software
product for translators, then marketing it and selling it.
Why do some people seem to utterly hate it... without even trying it out? Why would Proz.com not let me speak about it?
I also speak about my emotions I felt and feel during this proces. Selling is hard! And I am also getting a bit paranoid.
