5.0 out of 5 stars One of the few 'go-to' books for freelance linguists, 3 Dec 2012
Don't let the dry-looking cover fool you. This book is a must-read for all freelance linguists who like to focus on language and don't see themselves as business people, or who struggle with the business aspects of their profession. I'd especially recommend it to all graduating language/translation students, and freelancers who wish to move from an agency-based client portfolio to a direct client-based portfolio. Few of us have the whole range of topics covered as well as the authors of this book, so even experienced freelancers can pick up a few tips and become more entrepreneurial in their outlook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly gripping, 30 Nov 2012
This review is from: Found in Translation (Paperback)
We are not meant to notice the translators and interpreters around us: if they do their job well they should be invisible. Usually we only hear about them when they do their job badly: for instance through translation bloopers or diplomatic interpreting mistakes. Found in Translation explains this professional world and how it relates so profoundly to how we communicate today. The short pieces that make up the book are vivid and delightful. It's well written and flows smoothly. I have already bought copies to give as gifts; that's my highest recommendation.
