Course for Freelance Translators. Introduction

With my deepest gratitude to: my wife Victoria – for inspiration and wisdom; Ole Nydahl – for the advice to look for “translator colonies”; Bodo Schaeffer – for the “seventy-two hours” rule; Joanne Angulo – for the Marketing Techniques for Translators course.

Let me introduce myself: my name is Evgeny Marusik, I live in Wroclaw, Poland, and do translations for over 15 years, and in this course I want to share experience how to be successful in earning by freelance translation. The course consists of the theoretical part, containing the following sections:

  1. Translation Services Market
  2. Promoting Your Translator/Interpreter Services
  3. Translator’s Proficiency
  4. Financial And Legal Safety

and a practical tool in the form of Excel spreadsheets allowing to plan your activity and monitor successes.

The course duration is two months – that’s how long it took me to ensure a stable workload when due to moving to another country I had to start from scratch and master new ways to earn my living. Maybe with the help of this course you can make it faster.

THE COURSE WON’T HELP YOU IF

  • you don’t have time for freelance,
  • you can’t translate with good quality and in time,
  • you already earn more than 1000 euro per month.

If none of the above applies to you – Welcome onboard! Join the club of successful freelance translators.
