The crappy thing about freelancing is having to chase people down to pay you.

git the money up front!

You have training in the martial arts, yes? ;)

Yes, I have training in the martial arts, but one of the clients in question is located on the far side of the Pacific Ocean. I sent a little reminder and it turns out all is well. I'm just paranoid sometimes. I do still need to run after the local client who owes me, though.
No one agrees to pay up front in the translation business unless it's a huge project and then you might get %15 up front. I've never gotten paid before delivering the goods and as far as I remember, I haven't been stiffed yet. I've had to wait a very long time for payment in a couple of cases, but eventually they've all paid.
