Terms and Conditions
of Service: The Key
to Future-Proofing
and Protecting Your
Translation Business
From the buyer's side, I can't
imagine working with a
professional who doesn't put
their promise in writing. From
the translator's side, I can't
imagine doing business without
protecting my interests. A
well-drafted contract is such a
win for both sides in any line
of business that the thought of
doing business without one is, to
me, simply inconceivable.

Translating Humor Is a
Serious Business
Puns, regionalisms, wordplay,
and cultural references can make
the literal translation of humor
a joke in itself, not to mention a
seemingly impossible challenge
for the translator!
