I have been working as a full-time freelance translator since 1999.
Throughout my professional life I have come to the conclusion that a linguist professional has to adhere to some basic yet very important guidelines which not only guarantee the quality of the translation project delivered but also provide a solid base for long term professional relationships which is the key to success for both sides.
The basic rules I personally endorse are the following:
• Commitment to quality
I never undertake a project unless I am fully confident I can deliver a high quality translation
• Commitment to deadlines
Deadlines are of high importance to me as they are to my client. Keeping deadlines guarantee smooth work flow for me and my partners
In the age of information, confidentiality is one of the most important rules a professional linguist should adhere to.
