    Thanks for sharing Alfredo.
    I think "Being afraid of asking questions to clients" is the one that rules... and sometimes just a simple question could avoid so much trouble later!!!

    Hi, is someone out there a Translations Project Manager by chance?? I am a student of Translation Services and I have a few questions...

    1) Do you prefer vendors who have degrees in translation/interpretation or specialists who changed into a translation career?
    2) What's the role of price in picking vendors?
    3) What do you do when vendors make mistakes?
    4) What mistakes must be avoided at all costs?
    5) Is it common to pick translators who are near by geographically? or does it matter if they are from far away?6) What makes you to choose a translator again, especially a new one?
