You know that, in the language industry, mistakes in your work and your grammar are absolutely not allowed. If any other industry makes a little typo in an advertisement, it can be viewed as cute or funny. However, if your personal website posts, or even your tweets, have even the slightest error, your credibility can be at stake. Your job is to deliver a high-quality project. If clients see you make written mistakes anywhere, that gives them reason enough to think you may be careless about your job as well. Yes, we all have been guilty of typos, but as a part of the language industry, you have to be particularly careful to fix yours before they become public. So make sure that everything you write—including e-mails, tweets, your website layout, and even texts—are written perfectly. It is often a good practice to have them reviewed by another pair of eyes.
