Hi there, I will start in the next months a translators agency, and I would like to have a vague idea of the investment I should do at the beggining, could you please help me to have an approximate idea?
-Website good-looking and with high level of appearance in google, yahoo, etc
-ISO certificate

Is there need to make any official register in some kind of agencies association? Or only the usual procedure with the Tax in the country you're based?

Thanks a lot for your help,
Millan Gonzalez

Otherwise if you want to pay a company to make it, don't spend more than 800 $ US for that.

That's about as valid a statement as saying: "If you want to pay for a translation, don't spend more than 700 euro on it."

Websites come in all shapes and sizes. Depending on the customer's requirements, they might cost a hundred bucks or a fortune. Considering this, it's just not possible to answer the original question without knowing any further details.

IT Recent graduates/ students Dec 18, 2006

I know of starting professionals, who hired students and recent IT graduates (web designers). As they are starting it seems to be a good project for both sides. They will try to get you a good-looking job that will go in their portfolio as experience, however they will charge you a symbolic rate as they are starting, that could be something like 100 euros.

It is something that could be a good idea.

It might be worth having a look here
They do web hosting, but I think you'll find a link to their other site which offers ready-to-go websites - you basically rearrange the site and put in the information you want yourself and they offer full support too.
I have my translation site hosted with them.
Hope this helps.
