Officially I am a part-time translator who oftentimes works full-time.icon_smile.gif Since translation and the related services I provide are not my only source of income, there actually is no need for me to work full-time. As a translator, that is, since my writing career is picking up.

However, my clients know that I am always prepared and happy to work long hours (full-time) to fulfill their translation needs, and would not give them or translating up for anything in the world.icon_wink.gif

I translate and transcribe audio sporadically and am willing to make of translation an ongoing source of income. It's difficult to find clients!

My schedule is uneven Jul 2, 2014

I usually work 7 days a week, but depending on the workload, it may be 4 to 10 hours a day, and once in a while I get/take a day in between.
