Cooperation not competition

This presentation addresses how partnering works and makes you more effective, profitable and a better translator. In a competitive industry like ours, it seems counterintuitive to reach out to one’s competitors to find ways in which you can profit from each other’s skills. But as linguists excelling in communication, that’s exactly where our strength lies. Sharing our resources can only make us better-equipped for a hostile market, undergoing major changes including MT and the massive increase of CAT tools and cloud-based working methods. In any market, there will always be room for skilled and qualified professionals. But that means ensuring we are at the top of our game. In this presentation, Paula Hedley and Galina Green will outline the processes and criteria for partnering and improving your skills and business in the process.
