(1) How long does it take to make a living as a freelance translator?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A recent quick poll asked, "How long did it take you to be able to live solely on your income as a freelancer?" The answers have varied so far, though most say it took them fewer than two years, and 37% were able to do it in less than a year. See the poll results and add to the discussion at the link below.
