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!
