It depends on what you call an “online portfolio”. I’ve signed NDAs with most of my clients, which in some cases prevent me from even saying who I've been working for, but I translate quite regularly for a Portuguese weekly newspaper (“Expresso”) and the Portuguese version of a French monthly magazine (“Courrier International”) and with the agreement of the client I’ve selected a few examples to show to potential clients who visit my website (See more

I also have a few samples on my Proz profile, all of which are from translations that were made publicly available.Collapse

It has not really been necessary. Maybe my website does the job to some degree.

Don't use one. Sep 6

The way things stand at the moment, I'm lucky enough to be able to say that I don't really need any new clients. Perhaps if I was just starting out as a translator and needed to market myself I would consider preparing one, but today it's the least of my priorities.

Don't use one/NDAs Sep 6

Almost everything I translate is confidential for various reasons.

I said "Yes" Sep 7

My website, www.murieltranslations.com, has a broad description of the types of clients I've worked for (including a number of names), a few recommendations, a tab showing the books I've translated, and a section with samples of my work.

The site is badly in need of updating. The woman who did it for me eons ago no longer has the software to work on it, so I have a lot of material that nev

The site is badly in need of updating. The woman who did it for me eons ago no longer has the software to work on it, so I have a lot of material that never got posted. At this point, I would have to redo it from scratch.

That's what client feedback is for Sep 7

I have 125 positive reviews from client. I spent a lot of time and effort to get feedback from all my clients since 2010, and I got it.
For every new client, I write it down in my Sticking Notes to get their feedback.
This does not hurt the NDA's, since it is voluntarily provided by the client themselves.
