Planning for the Future

We are pretty sure that many of you might be thinking about how to”future-proof” yourself so that when the next emergency hits (it doesn’t have to be a pandemic), you will have other options available. One such option is to work as a remote interpreter – which involves much more than just picking up your phone or signing in online.
That’s right… it’s time to take the plunge
