This is true not only of individual consumers but also of companies and large customers of translation services. The following blog entitled, "Planning a Realistic Budget for Your Translation Requirements," was written and posted by Sajan (www.sajan.com) on September 19, 2012, and specifically addresses concerns that large customers might have over cost containment. Sajan's blog posts are always such high quality, so I am re-posting the link below and hope that my readers find it useful:
