Summary:A no-nonsense and market-orientation of translation quality for new freelancers. The webinar stresses why linguistic quality is necessary but not sufficient for work and earning satisfaction. It introduces a home brewed, tested and simple quality model.
The webinar de-mystifies the concept of Quality using common sense and market sense. You would feel empowered about quality of translation rather than being edgy about it.
