I have been translating academic papers, dissertations and articles for the last ten years. I decided to focus on this translation business more professionally and am really interested in software translation, app translation, localization part of it.
How can I get started, which tools do I need, is it something that I can learn after I am 30?
So, in brief, where should I start? I am not working for any kind of agency, I was always involved in long term projects by Research Centres, they were not agencies or companies.

Thanks for the support!

I started my career like yours. I first collected experience with free or bona fide jobs. I learned a lot through Proz.com fora and online training.
