Gabi Nagy_BP20 Translation Conference_LSPs versus direct clients_challenges and pitfalls

Wise men learn by others’ harm, so let’s be wise.
This short presentation will shed light to the challenges encountered by freelance translators and interpreters when they interact with Language Service Providers (LSPs) the way they normally relate to their direct clients and vice versa. Instead of falling into this trap, let’s learn how to apply your experience with direct clients accumulated over the years and make it an asset in your dealing with translation and interpreting intermediaries and the other way round. Expect some best practices and hands-on stories to be told that can give reason for some laughter/tears, depending on from whose perspective you are looking at the situation. Hopefully, you will come away with some ideas to consider in your dealing with your beloved business partners, may they be direct clients or LSPs
