“This course inspired me to take many steps necessary to transform from a dabbling newbie into a serious professional,” reports a participant in my online course Getting Started as a Freelance Translator. The next session starts on April 2, and I have five spots left (maximum of 10 students per session). In this four-week, fully-online course, beginning translators get my individualized feedback on their translation-targeted resume and cover letter, marketing plan, rates and billable hours sheet and online presence. We also do a one-hour question and answer conference call every week, and every student receives a copy of my books How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator and Thoughts on Translation.
The course registration fee is US $305 ($50 discount for ATA members) and you can read more about the course or register on my website.
If you’re interested in a more advanced course, for freelancers who have an established business and want to take it up a notch, the next session of Beyond the Basics of Freelancing starts on May 14.
