In case you’re not subscribed to the Slator newsletter or never pop onto their website – it’s really worth it, including for freelancers. There is always something interesting about what’s happening in the language industry, as well as great articles with tips and helpful links.
The most recent newsletter had an article about the ‘Translator Scammers Directory’ (TSD) website and included some great links (e.g. a document on how to spot a fake CV).
I have written about the problem of stolen identities and other security issues before, so if you are interested, take a look at these posts:
