Why Acolad Community?

 

Being bilingual is not enough to make you a translator. We want to showcase translators and the key role they play in today’s society. We believe that the goodwill of a community is essential. Discussion with peers is the best way for freelance translators to expand their networks and help each other out.

The translation industry is in a state of upheaval, especially with the emergence of new technologies.

We are committed to making freelance translators agents of these changes.
