For those of you who are not just beginning your journey as a freelance translator, I wanted to share a plug for the online course “Advancing your freelance career”. Next session starts in September.
This course is ran by the UK Institute of Translation and Interpreting. Please check the ITI website for up-to-date details.
Advancing your Freelance Translation Career is aimed at translators who have been freelancing for some time and want to focus on finding premium work with high-quality agencies and direct clients.
Discover how to identify your differences to give you a competitive advantage. Define your ideal client base and learn how to fine tune your sales techniques.
