Summary:Learn how to take ACTIVE steps so that to find clients and partners in LinkedIn, get more translation projects and make business connections with colleagues!
Description

LinkedIn is one of the fastest growing social media platforms today. It can help you when you want to:

- start getting more translation projects;
