Description

In this episode, Eve and Corinne delve into a topic that’s been at the top of the news in the translation industry lately: the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR. We are not GDPR experts, and we’re certainly not attorneys. And the GDPR is a voluminous piece of legislation. If GDPR compliance is mission-critical in your business, definitely consult a specialized attorney. What we’ve assembled here is a variety of tips on how the GDPR affects freelance translators, including what both of us have done to move toward compliance. We cover:



  • The basic rights that the GDPR gives “data subjects”

  • Resources on the GDPR that are specific to freelance translators

  • Who has to comply with the GDPR

  • How the GDPR may apply to personal data contained in translations

  • How the GDPR may apply to your e-mail list and website

  • Why the GDPR is likely to make online life more pleasant, after the initial adjustment period
