I am sorry to put it in English, but my Spanish is not good enough.
Some weeks ago there was a discussion regarding a way to collect information for the beginners as freelance translators.
The conclusions of these discussions are: we could do "How-to's" for each country, where information can be found in a sort of database.
Somebody already did for France. I have already done for Germany and submitted to Ralf Lemster for corrections and suggestions.
Messages have been put in the Italian and Spanish forum, but did not yet show up.
I could see there are beginners who ask a lot of questions and also people who get established in a new country.
Here are some useful information needed:

1. Skills, Studies, certificates required
2. Certificates for notarial translations and Court
3. Financial registration (VAT a.s.o)
4. Medical insurance
5. Social insurance
6. Unemployment insurance
7. Pension insurance
8. Invoicing:
-softare
-VAT (income limits which require VAT registration, for which countries to consider VAT and for what kind of clients)
9. CAT - which is useful for what, features a.s.o
10. Other aspects
Web-sites with such information are also wellcome in the databases.

I am adressing here especially to countries like: Italy, Spain and Latin-American countries, all English speaking countries (UK,USA, Canada, Australia a.s.o), where there are a great number of translators.The others are also wellcome to do it for them.

Help your colleagues,
Ruxi
