Next Wednesday, June 13, at 12:00 noon New York time, Eve Bodeux and I will be hosting our next Speaking of Translation conference call. This time we’ll be talking about freelance sabbaticals (and extended vacations) abroad and how to manage your business on the road. These calls are a continuation of our Speaking of Translation podcast and each one focuses on a different topic related to translation or the business of translation.
Here’s the full description of our topic: Part of the appeal of working as a freelancer is location independence: in theory, translators can work from anywhere with a reliable Internet connection. But what’s actually involved in taking your freelance show on the road? How do you create a truly mobile office? Find a place to live? Manage your clients while in another country? As Eve and Corinne prepare for their own “overseas sabbaticals,” they will offer their insights and take your questions about working abroad as a freelancer.
The call will last about 30 minutes; it’s completely free and you can listen in by phone or by Skype, or listen to the recording that we’ll post afterward. Eve and I will talk a bit about our upcoming freelance sabbaticals, and we’ll answer any questions that you submit in advance.
