Directories: general

Is the directory important to me if I want to meet clients?

The directory is the leading source of new clients for translators at, and in the translation industry as a whole. While there may be good reason to make a job posting, experienced clients often have a very good idea of the skills, experience and credentials they are looking for in a translator or interpreter, and therefore choose to contac a small number of translators directly, via the directory and profile pages. This allows them to skip the tender phase of a project.

If meeting clients is among your objectives at, make sure that your profile is complete so that your directory entry is also complete -- with detailed fields of expertise entered!--and that your profile contains a representative tagline. It is also strongly suggested that you use your real name.
