Let’s start with a small question: has it happened to you that you work with regional teams and who fail to match schedules for something as basic as a call via Skype or an email? It is essential that you know how to work with different time zones. And this applies to both professionals and customers.

If you are a professional, in this case, a translator or a project manager, when you embark on international freelancing, one of the key points that you have to take into account are time and cultural differences, especially to organize your work and meet deadlines. On the other hand, if you are an entrepreneur or you are managing a project and you work with a remote team of freelance professionals (often located in different geographical areas) you should also know in detail their way of working and work routine, in order to align the team and synchronize tasks.

That is why today we need to prepare useful techniques so that you keep in mind what schedules and routines they handle in other countries of the region (and a little further away as well) and do not get “disappointments” in your day to day (when for example, wait for the response to an e-mail and it is highly probable that the client - or professional, depending on the case - is in full lunch or maybe sleeping).

There are so many ways to organize our information to be a good worker in a company, so this will help you to avoid difficulties. In Wagner International, we work with people from all over the world, like Russia or China, so we need to handle the situation when we need to contact a translator for an important project that is on the other side of the world, but sometimes they are not replying. We need to be conscious of the differences between some countries.

A good way to start with our organization can be with something called infographics, and there are many pages that offer tools that help you to organize information efficiently. In our case, we can organize it in different ways, for example, we can include most major cities in Latin America, some cities in the United States with the highest concentration of Hispanic people, and it is also necessary to include the main cities in Europe, Asia, and Africa, already working with many translators from those parts of the world. In these pages you will find data such as GMT schedules, abbreviations of time zones, particular information of each country (such as official language, currency and holidays), and office and lunch hours (general, because this always varies depending on each particular case. company or professional does not always follow the socially established “pattern”).

You can start now with a good resource for you to have on hand and help you organize yourself better. Trying new things that help us improve are always welcome.
