I must go along with you with this process. I have been doing translation
coordination for years and have been using the same agency for most of that
time. Since the agency and I are now "partners in the process," they have been
able to reduce some of their costs because we now "think alike." The time the
service has saved me in coordination, edit, and page layout is worth more than I
can save in $$ from any other business performance aspect. I can also be getting
a lot more work done while my service is doing the work they are paid for.
I would like a copy of your "20 questions" off line.
