Jiri will offer tips for freelance translators and interpreters on how to maintain a good working relationship with a Language Services Provider and how to determine whether an LSP makes a good client. As someone who has been on both sides of the fence – he worked for many years as a freelance translator before starting his company – he will do his best to provide a balanced view, and will also compare the work of a freelancer to that of a company owner.
