A group of seasoned translators and interpreters joined forces to create a practical guide to translation students and newcomers to the field. These tips and advice stem from their experiences and are available online, free of charge. The guide addresses our profession in a no-nonsense way, but the book is also encouraging and offers practical hands-on tips about how to make it in our field.
Translator and interpreter are not professions that require official certification (except for court-certified interpreters and authorized translators), so anyone can hang up their shingle as a translator. The majority of translators and interpreters are either solopreneurs or small businesses, this guide tackles the everyday problems of solopreneurs, but inhouse translators may also benefit from the insights.
