Hello. I am new to ProZ .com and just getting started in Translating for income. I have not yet decided on a specialty however I am looking to explore the legal, educational, or employment industries. In doing so I would like to start by working as a sub contractor for another experienced translator. This translator would have 10+ years of freelance experience and would be able to edit and proof my work. Rates negotiable.

Please view my profile for the details of my work experience and education should this opportunity interest you.

Sincerely,
Jackie L. Bodnar

So you are hiring a translator? Jul 9, 2011

So you are willing to pay a more experienced translator to learn from his/her reviews of your work?

In response to Tomas and Prof .... Jul 9, 2011

Tomas, Actually either hiring or being hired would work however I am not currently working on a translation that I could hire a translator to help with. Have you worked with other translators before?

Prof., Yes, I have contacted a mentor within ProZ and am currently waiting a response.


Thank you very much for your responses.

Mentoring is probably the option Jul 9, 2011

I reckon that after your studies your best option is to try to get in touch with a mentor.

I don't think mentoring would be an option in my case. I am terribly picky about everything and would be a true pain in the neck as a mentor. Would never be happy!!

Good luck!
