As a freelancer, do you face communication difficulties because of different languages?
Being a freelancer we have to deal with people from all over the world. As a result I often end up trying to understand what a client is trying to tell me, but since he/she is not able to explain himself well in English, we end up not understanding one another. It bothers me a great deal when such a thing happens because before starting to work I always want to be sure what the client is expecting from me. There were times when I ended up even trying to write in their language because it became almost impossible to comprehend what they wanted!
Do you face these communication difficulties often? What do you do?
