Category: Translation

Our translation articles are mostly for industry practitioners. These are the freelance translators who work with agencies and/or direct clients. In other words, you.

Unlike professionals in many other industries, translators often work in relative isolation. They sit in front of their computers, researching terminology or making decisions about lexical equivalents.

So how can a lone translator stay on top of industry issues? Read our articles on translation, of course!

It’s one way for you to feel connected to other professionals but who might not be in your time zone.
