Dear fellow freelances in China, I need your advice:

I am Spanish and I have my legal residence in Spain, where I am registered as a freelance. However a month ago I came to China for a Chinese course and it happens that I've fallen in love with this country and I would like so much to stay.

The question is how to legally establish my freelance activity in this country.

I would really appreciate any tips on this topic!!

Sell yourself to large translation Componies May 3, 2006

Freelancing translation is a new job market emerging in China in recent years. If you try to do that job there, you should keep alert on some untrusty companies, especially the small ones. When you begin to do business, you should contract with them in written or oral form. For example, the price, the date to pay, the formula to count words, if lucky, then you can exert your efforts and reap sweet fruits in your dreamed land.
