Advice for Translators

This list offers advice for translators, and it includes a mention of me.

Tip 1 is to “Make your skills known to family and acquaintances. A friend of a friend of a cousin can become your best client.”

I always advise students and other new translators to do this. Treat yourself like a professional and tell everyone you know that you’re a translator. You never know who might need your services! 

Check out the other tips too.

Great list, dear B.J.! Thanks so much for sharing -- we will share it with our translation students, as this is very useful indeed. Greetings from Vegas and Vienna!

Hi B.J.,

Thank you for putting together such a nice blog for the translation community.

I am working on a quick guide for people interested in a career as a freelance translator, which is somehow related to your 'Advice for Translators'. This is a work-in-progress effort, but I would appreciate if you could take a look at it when you get a chance: https://thetranslationcompany.com/resources/career-handbook.htm Many thanks, Luciano Oliveira, TTC's CEO
