Just a quick announcement: From December 1-22, I’ll be offering a special four-week session of my online course Getting Started as a Freelance Translator. I’ve been teaching this class since 2005 and it has helped over 200 translators launch or grow their freelance businesses. This new and shorter session is for beginning freelancers who want to get a jump on their business goals for 2012, and we’ll be working on your translation-targeted resumé and cover letter, goals and marketing plan, rates and billable hours sheets and your online presence. I conduct the class entirely by e-mail, so you do not need to be online at any specific time to participate.
The cost is $250 with a $50 discount for ATA members through the ATA member-provider program, and everyone who participates will receive a copy of the second edition of my book How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator. Hope to see some of you there! For a full description or to sign up, here’s the link!
