Schedule:This session ended at 11:45
Description:

The latest added 'Professional Guidelines' on minimum rates aim to guarantee the quality of the work produced. Some recent trends will increasingly jeopardize that quality from another angle: unrealistic or irresponsible deadlines.

This winning group discussion topic was suggested by the following ProZ.com member: mmb42

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to keep chat conversations manageable and enjoyable for all attendees, multiple chat rooms have been created with a maximum of 100 users in each room. If a room is full, simply enter a different room which has not reached the 100 person limit.
