Do you ever need to discuss texts with a colleague? If you’re sitting together in the same room it’s relatively easy. You can go through the document together, pointing out on the screen or on paper where you have questions or suggestions. But what if you need to ring a colleague to query parts of the translation of a brochure? Or how about if you’re taking part in a conference call to discuss the wording of a contract?
