Translators Love The Open Mic

Dmitry KornyukhovEnglish-Russian Translator, Founder of The Open Mic

I always wanted to create a unique space where we can talk about the problems and find solutions. Together. A space that will be free from corporate greed and excessive censorship. A space where everyone will be able to speak up and help us improve the image of our profession. Where established translators can share their experience and newbie translators can learn something that will change their lives and the way they do business.

I know it might sound a little bit over the top, but I believe that WE CAN SHAPE THE FUTURE of the translation profession!

While having a ton of fun building the most vibrant translation community on the web!
