  5. Sad truth(s) about the translation industry

    Translation industry is passing through the new IT era where it is difficult to differentiate between professional translators and " google it followers " when supply exceeds demand prices fall till the market adjust itself ( Equilibrium ) even peanuts will be hard for a professional like me ti earn !!!!!!!!!! this is life
  6. Working with big clients

    from my personal experience as a freelancer , there are two major constraint factors ( time and peace of mind ) if i work with clients directly , i will waste time chasing them to pay or rectifying silly demands, so i will waste time and peace of mind to excel in other jobs .............. so leave it all and deal as a freelancer ..........even with cheap rates you will save time to increase your income through high productivity
  7. Working in rare language pairs

    Although you have classified Arabic among " the most in demand " but after more than a year with Smartcat even offering USD0.035/word I failed to get a single job...........my local clients (translating offices ) are highly appreciating and honoring my skills particularly after i started using CAT tools ( Smartcat) I bothered Vova and other support team members to check my profile and advise me on how to make myself acceptable but may be that is beyond their scope if i fail to get projects till the end of 2017 i have to quit
  8. Customers vs Clients

    in Arabic any translator is facing a real terminology problem that differs according to various cultures around the Arab world... we may say " Ameel" for a customer but this word is also used daily " politics language "to mean a person helping your enemy !!! so, some government agencies started to avoid this word" Ameel " by using " Mutaameleen" i.e. dealers ,to stand for customers .... in the day to day use ( market language ) the word " Zaboon" is used to stand for " customer ", but this word sound so colloquial to be used in official texts
