Starting up an agency Feb 2, 2013

I am a freelancer, unfortunately not enough business is coming my way to make a living out of it. I am about to open an agency, that would work mostly with local businesses in Croatia. My biggest worry is cost and time effective marketing, and would appreciate any advice on the matter.

CAT tool efficiency? Feb 19, 2013

I am also a freelancer and am trying to cross that bridge of purchasing a CAT tool. As a manager of an agency, Mr. Potter, I would like to ask you is: How much of a real difference to you see in the quality of translations that are generated using a CAT tool? Do you find that in the long run, post-editing cancels out the time saved using a CAT tool?
