eCPD Webinars is organizing a webinar entitled “Binding Agreements and Legal Principles for Translators” on 25 May 2016 at 2 pm UK time.
The webinar will cover some of the recurring issues that self-employed translators face when entering into binding agreements with agencies and/or direct clients, as well as some standard legal principles that can help them make better and more informed decisions before signing.
Even though each country has its own laws and statutes governing contract law, there are still some simple legal concepts that are common in most countries and which can prove to be very helpful for translators.
