Hi you there!
I've decided to start my translation part time career some months ago, almost a year, though I've been actually doing small (free) jobs for friends and family for the last ten years.
Since I haven't had any luck I almost gave up, but then decided to take it easy and doing practice translations, to improve my knowledge and skills on Wordfast mainly, but also to gain some speed.
Well, anyway, I'm looking for a translator on the ENES pairs with some working experience who would kindly review my work.
Since they're not jobs, I don't have a deadline and I can assure you they're short (2000 aprox each)
I'm just looking for good advice and help!!

Have you tried agency work? Sep 7, 2006

Hi Paola,

Have you applied to any agency to work as an external translator? A good agency will tell you how well you did on your test translation, and it may even lead to real work.

thanks Sep 25, 2006

Actually I've applied for several agencies by now, but got no answer so far.
At the moment I can't accept a large job since I'm working (I'm an ESL teacher) AND studying but I'm still practicing, that's why I'd like someone with experience and time just to review what I'm doing so I can gain experience.
