Global Watchtower says sky not falling on freelancers

Keep Calm and Carry On seems to be the takeaway from Global Watchtower’s recent survey of 277 freelance language professionals. When asked about the fourth quarter of 2008, more than three quarters of respondents said that their business was either good or satisfactory, despite that quarter’s distinction as the most financially disastrous in recent history. Better yet, although “large numbers” of respondents reported feeling pressured to lower their rates, more than three quarters said that they did not plan to charge less during the upcoming quarter. You can read a summary of the survey’s results on the Global Watchtower website, or register there to receive a free copy of the full results.
