100 percent useful!
As a fellow translator and podcaster, I am very pleased to have discovered Paul's podcast. We do not have enough of them in our industry. Paul's episodes are informative and useful and I definitely recommend them to any translator who wants to improve his or her business skills.
Interesting (and Helpful!)
Suzanne has quite an interesting background. Wish I had started so early with language learning as well! I've noticed quite a demand for legal translation online--great area for new translators to get into.
