The Importance of Saying No as a Freelance Translator

March 9, 2017

Anyone who does freelance work for a living will eventually come across this dilemma - should I accept yet another project or have a break from 'all of this'?! The answer is in fact an obvious one - yes, you ought to have a break!

 

When what we do for a living, and indeed like doing so much, takes us to a point where the option of throwing in the towel and leaving everything behind is starting to be considered a reasonable one, then in order to maintain the reliability of your work; your #clients being happy with the quality of it; and more importantly your own well-being, have some time off! For how long? Only you can answer this. Just bear in mind that the longer you let stress and tiredness build-up, the worse it will be to effectively recover...

 

In order to be a successful freelancer every one of your projects should always reflect you and the quality you can deliver. Bad #translations or failed delivery deadlines are the two easiest ways to lose clients! Having the much needed rest and not accepting any more #projects because you don't have enough time to do them shows you are a #professional freelancer, and mindful of your work's quality.

 

Get enough fresh air and quality time alone or with your #family and #friends, and you'll feel ready to work harder and better.  Both you and your esteemed clients will greatly benefit from it!
