      I have always wondered which approach to translation is more effective for freelance expert, in terms of getting an order? From the first glance it looks obvious that the specialists possess an advantage over generalists. However, from my own practice, I realized that it is rather common issue that specialists in some particular area are far from perfection in translation of some texts, related to sub-areas, while the generalists are more successful here due to freshness of vision and good research skills.
