    Does blogging help?
    Proz.com has made some cosmetic changes, but bascially, the rates stay as low as ever. Given that my minimum is 0,10 eurocent, I have yet to see an offer on Proz.com where price-information is visible.
    Most are hidden due to rates of 0.01-0.06$. $ when the outsourcer and both the translator live in the eurozone. Translation of a balance-sheet at those rates.
    I wonder if any accountant would work for such rates?

    Why don’t we become webdeveloppers. There is always room for a quality portal for translators, charging a hefty membership fee, but allowing only postings from outsourcers, who pay a decent rate. It creator could earn a lot.
