ProZ.com recently added business pages to the platform. This change brings ProZ.com more in line with similar platforms where businesses are displayed differently from employees.

So from now on at ProZ.com, profiles are for people, pages are for businesses.

This might be new to some businesses whose company identity was often shared among many employees. Every employee is now invited to build their own profile, for a unique identity. Each confirmed employee will also be able to perform actions on behalf of the business.

Excellent synergy of TMS and CAT = BaccS + Memsource: Guest post by Jakov Milicevic

July 19, 2018 / by Jared Tabor posted in freelancer, translation company, project management, Translation Management Software, BaacS

0 Comments

Once upon a time there were two translators, Jelena and Jakov. They decided to set up a boutique translation agency and named it Verbosari. Their goal was to provide a unique experience to clients requiring services in translation and localisation fields.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the beginning, our workflow was quite small since we had just a few clients. However, during the years, our reputation grew owing to our unique professional approach and impeccable quality of our work. It started to reflect in the growth of our business and we needed to do something to boost our efficiency and facilitate the whole process for our clients. We wanted to offer them a unique personalized approach by giving them full monitoring of the process, from the price quote to the final translation. The process is completely transparent and based on 5 steps: direct contact with the translator, a single PM, a personalized customer portal, involvement in the whole process and providing feedback.

Smart translators and interpreters
are wearing sunglasses

The future looks bright for a certain type of translator, interpreter, or anyone providing language services.

These are the language professionals who are able to adapt to the changes that affect us all in general, and the changes that affect how things work in the industry. Some of these changes are related to globalization, some are tech-based, others have to do with how we have come to expect a service to be delivered, in terms of time, cost, and quality, and very often without even having met the person or persons providing the service.
