“To be honest, I don’t have any suggestions for improvement in this course. I’ve tried many courses online and they never seem to work for me, but this one was amazing. Corinne was such a great organizer…I have taken dozens of online courses and have never experienced this level of follow-up, reminders, etc.”

Past participants say…

“At the start of this year I decided to invest in myself and take Corinne McKay’s course Beyond the Basics of Freelancing. The course was fantastic, full of lots of interesting materials and useful tips and tricks on how to move forward with our businesses. I was particularly struck with how generous Corinne is with her time and how she makes herself available on conference calls, inviting questions to answer and debating business issues with fellow translators. If you are wondering how to move up a gear in your business and take it to the next level, studying the BBF course is an excellent way to help you do that.” -Jason Willis-Lee, MITI

“The coaching group definitely gave me a strong incentive to work on marketing every day because of the built-in accountability. I miss the calls now!  Overall, I’m very glad I did it, and I don’t think I would ever have done this much work on my own!” -a participant in the advanced coaching and accountability group
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 Corinne’s course.”- a participant in “Getting Started as a Freelance Translator

This class offers a great overview of all the essential aspects of book translation and helped me narrow in on the best avenues to pursue based on my background and interests. One of the best parts of the class was the opportunity to get direct feedback from Corinne and to ask her so many questions.” -a participant in “Breaking Into the Book Translation Market

“Simply put, this is one of the finest resources for any translator. No matter what your specialization is, I guarantee you will take something away from Corinne’s online course. For those just starting, it will instruct and guide. For veterans, it can remind and reaffirm. In either case, you’ll definitely enjoy the experience!”

“Corinne is a blessing to all of us translators that have not reached terminal velocity yet. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of a freelance translator’s challenges and has great passion for helping her students. Her books are great, but her online course is even better, because you take a feeling of “I can do this!” from it. I had a big increase in income the year after I took Corinne’s course and I attribute a large portion of that success to Corinne. I could not think of a better way to give your freelancing career a big boost than taking her course. Very inspirational, very valuable information, great program all-round!”
