I think these kind of tips are crucial. Although they are obvious you not always bear them in mind!

As a translator you got to have these ethics sink in you, then you can be sure of delivering an outstanding piece of work and thereby multiplying your chances of more work/clients.
This is one of the video i will listen over and over again.

Everyone who would like to be a translator would find these ponts absolutely enlightening especially those regarding ethics. I enjoyed them very much. Once again congratulation.

Being ethical is a must in our line of work. Like somebody once said, “A translator has to be as confidential as a catholic priest in confession.”

Being a translator or an interpreter you need to stick to the ethics and the principles of the profession.

Very practical and useful information.

Translation is not just a job, it’s a behaviour.
