Second edition of "How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator" is here!


I’m excited to announce that the second edition of How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator is officially available on Lulu; it will be available on Amazon and in retail locations in about 6-8 weeks. Thanks to everyone who made the first edition such a success; my vague goal when I published it in 2006 was to sell 500 copies, and it is being sent to a well-deserved retirement with 4,366 copies in print as of today. Note that for the moment, the second edition is available only from Lulu; other sales channels still have the first edition. If you are a translation blogger or a journalist and you would like a review copy of the second edition, please contact me.

So what’s new in the second edition? Well, it’s 206 pages long (as compared with the first edition’s 145 pages) and all of the information from the first edition is fully revised. There’s a completely new chapter on “Your first year as a freelance translator,” another on “Online networking and social media,” separate sections on marketing to agencies and marketing to direct clients and a sneak preview of my next book, a compilation of articles from this blog that will be out later this year. Thanks to everyone who was so supportive during the long and arduous process of taking this book to press. I’m not sure why it took me longer to write the second edition than to write the first, but in any case it’s here!
