In our profession, that is. Let’s ask ourselves some questions, all related to the master question of this talk: What’s going on? My task will be to provide you with some clues but, with no answers. All questions, I promise, will be about us, our profession, our clients and, of course, our money: Are you still bidding for jobs online? Seriously? We need 230 words within 2 hours, or 5 “linguists” to share the job. Really? Are we earning enough? Enough for what? Why is money pouring in into the translation market? Isn’t there anything more profitable? I saved the best one for last: how to hang yourself, with you providing the rope, the beam and even the bench to kick (caution: very graphic images will be shown).[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section tab_id=”1536947254629-50d68294-6adaf4d6-e7488d89-677c” title=”Bio”][vc_column_text]
