Hi everybody,

I'm wondering how it would be to settle as an independant translator in the Republic of Ireland.
- Any do's and don't's?
- Economically spoken, what are the advantages (and maybe comparing to Belgium if by chance you have an idea about that specific case).
- Economically spoken, what are the disadvantages (and maybe comparing to Belgium if by chance you have an idea about that specific case).
- What are your experiences?
- What about children and what one has to pay for school/studies etc.?
- What about social security contributions? How much is it and do you pay that monthly, every three months, every six months, every year ...
- What about taxes?
