Quality or low price?

Every business, whatever the size or industry, is aware of the importance of marketing and creating the perfect image of their company. It is particularly important when you target an audience of non-English speakers. In order to get it right, some businesses are ready to invest a large chunk of their budget for translation but there are companies that assume this could be done at a low cost.

Ability or network?

This excellent post was written by my Twitter-friend Konstantina Drakou (@wordyrama). I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I did!

Does success arrive from your ability or from your network?  Let’s take me for example, Konstantina Drakou  (@wordyrama), a financially struggling 32-year translator (who after ten years in the UK returns home to Crete). After working mostly for clients within the Greek market for four years I face first-hand the effects of the country’s financial dire state, hold a part-time job in IT to keep up with the terminology in the field and to, well basically, survive.
