Eve Bodeux and I recently recorded a joint podcast with Tess Whitty, host of the popular Marketing Tips for Translators podcast. The topic is outsourcing for translators: not outsourcing your actual translation work, but outsourcing business, marketing and productivity tasks so that you can focus on the work that you enjoy and do best (while someone else handles the work you dislike or aren’t good at!). We’ve each offered tips on what to outsource, how to find people to outsource to, what newer translators should consider outsourcing, and some of the benefits of outsourcing.
Note that Speaking of Translation is now on iTunes! If you enjoy the episodes, please leave us a review there! And if you outsource any of your own tasks, leave a comment and let us know how it’s going!
