I have a Greek friend who has a languages degree and is eager to get some work as a translator. Where is the best place to look for freelance jobs with the above language combination? And also are there any decent inhouse positions in France for Greek translators?

Hope someone out there can help.

"Where is the best place to look for freelance jobs with the above language combination?"

I assume "the best place" must be in the European Union, in Brussels -I've heard they earn good cash- but with "a languages degree" you're not telling us a lot: why doesn't (s)he tries in ProZ, to begin?

Must be.

3.-

"I have a Greek friend..."

Why doesn't (s)he writes to us in order to have more information and know (her) him better as (she) he "is eager to get some work as a translator."?

Best of lucks, though.

Well, as you know in the EU many of the translation jobs are based on competitions. Much patience and hard work is required, and not everyone has what it takes to pass the gruelling selection process.

I'm writing for my friend, as a favour, as she is currently ill and I'm trying to cheer her up! Surely, I have the right to do that!

She doesn't know about proz yet, but I will tell her as soon as she's better.

Thanks
