First Steps to Finding Direct Clients

"After deciding to become a freelance translator, I have never looked back.." - Tess Whitty


Freelance English-Swedish translator since 2003

Despite having a marketing degree and a Masters in Business Communication, Tess doesn’t like the traditional delivery of fluffy, vague soundbites.
She prefers direct, easy-to-implement advice.
This website is a hub for these actionable tips!
It’s based on the award-winning podcast of the same name, which focuses on interviews with successful freelance translators who have the results to prove that their marketing magic works.


Being a Freelance Translator is hard

You’re up against the big fish of the corporate world, and it’s easy to become a faceless (and nameless – ever get those emails?) number on a PM’s task list.

You can change that.

Ask the 4,000+ subscribers & listeners to Tess’s podcast, or the hundreds of freelance linguists who voted for Tess in the Proz Community Choice Awards over the past 4 years for her work as a trainer, speaker, and podcasting pro.
