Review

2008 International Year of Languages was proclaimed by the UNESCO. To face  the increasing demand for translation, standards and their improvements must follow. 

We know that crossing  the barriers of language can be achieved. For this, we need expert translators. The global translation community must work together and support each other in a quest to improve standards and practices.

This is the only way we can attain better recognition and respect. Abusive rates and predatory practices must be our common adversary during this important year. This special year is given to us to make a difference.

That is why this book openly addresses an issue of major importance that we translators are not just scribes, but necessary and needed resources through which improvement of standards can be recognized, accomplished and appreciated.
