The solution

Skilled interpreters (not translators) offer a useful solution in these circumstances. Not just any interpreter, mind. One who has lived and worked in both countries and knows how to read the language, inference and non-verbal cues from both sides of the table. 

Seamless conversation using an interpreter will make your meeting feel more professional and can demonstrate just how keen you are to communicate and do business.

“He means, leave out the olives,” the translator says.

It all means that almost every translation agency (and, of course, every direct client) do not look for the cheapest service providers. What they are looking for are translators with certain level of expertise and rates these agencies can afford. Which in its turn means that you can`t “guess” their price range – you have to have your range of prices set before you start marketing your business. And this range has to be within generally accepted ranges of translation rates. Because sale of your expertise for lower rates will always raise questions.
