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!
