Just wondering what other work people do while they are trying to get established in order to keep money coming in and leave themselves with enough time and energy to plough into translation? Am living in rather remote area so possibilities quite limited!

presumably working from home? Sep 24, 2006

I must admit I was running freelance translation alongside paid employment for quite some time.

I did complete the indexing course of the Society of Indexers and now receive a fairly steady stream of indexing from a couple of clients, which is less time-critical work that I fit in as and when I feel like it.

Ebay? You will need something that sells more or less on its own merits, ideally a small range of higher-value items so that you do not waste too much time on listing and posting out in relation to the return you receive.
