Get 3 friends to review your profile, but choose 3 different kinds of friends to review your profile to get more results. Find a friend in the language industry, a friend who hires people in any line of work, and a friend who loves you no matter what.
Are you a freelancer constantly on the move? In a world where living as a digital nomad is becoming more and more common, it leaves us wondering how to transition from a traditional lifestyle to one unencumbered by physical boundaries.

In the recent International Translation Day event at ProZ.com, Daniel Coria took part in a "How to get more clients" panel (along with Martina Russo and Stephen Rifkind). One concept that Coria mentioned, that of "skill stacking", definitely struck a chord with ProZ.com Head of Training Paul Urwin.
Using freelancers for language jobs can help save time and make LSPs more efficient. Paying freelancers from around the world is not efficient. Imagine if the time to onboard and pay those same freelancers were eliminated.
