Greetings, readers! I apologize for the radio silence here over the past couple of weeks (lots of big translation projects going on!), and I have a couple of posts in the works that will go up soon.
My online courses always take a pause over the summer, but I wanted to let you know that the September session of Getting Started as a Freelance Translator is open for registration at the Early Bird rate of $380. This session is filling up pretty quickly, so now is a good time to register if you like to plan ahead!
This is a four-week online session for beginning translators in any language combination, anywhere in the world. Over the four weeks, you’ll do 12 online videos at your own pace, and you’ll complete four homework assignments that I will give you individualized feedback on: your translation-targeted resume and cover e-mail, rates and billable hours sheet, marketing plan, and online presence. We also do eight live question and answer sessions (recordings provided if you can’t attend live), so that you can get all of your questions about freelance translation answered. When you’re looking at online courses, I think it’s important to pick one that offers individual feedback and the opportunity to ask questions, which all of my courses do.
A past student in this class commented, “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.” If you’d like to launch your freelance business on the right foot, reserve your spot today and join us on September 6 when the course kicks off.
