[webinar] 12 April at 2:30 London time. Many translators are assigned creative projects by large agencies and produce respectable translations. But what if you were to hone your skills and seek work from niche agencies and direct clients? They will pay a higher rate but they will expect more. So how can you make the transition from fine to fabulous?

Alison Hughes will look at the skills required, focussing on three key areas: fashion, beauty and wine.

She will begin by explaining the particularities of the three areas before focussing on the fundamentals of a good creative translator:

excellent writing skills
the courage to move away from the source
subject knowledge and where to find it
before rounding off the webinar with some networking and CPD tips.
