This course session is now full. I will update my website with the next start date!
The next session of my online course for beginning translators, Getting Started as a Freelance Translator, starts on April 1, and registration is open on my website; I currently have three spots left in this session. This is a four-week course for translators who want to launch and run a successful freelance business, and a participant in the course commented that:
Neither in my undergraduate classes in education nor in some of the more practical classes I took as part of my MA in English (including the course connected to my assistantship as a writing consultant) did I ever experience one course that delivered as much precise and helpful information as this course.
Translators in any language combination are welcome, and every student gets individual feedback from me on four targeted assignments: your 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 everyone receives copies of my books How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator and Thoughts on Translation.
Registration is US $350, or US $300 if you are a member of ATA. I hope to see some of you there!
