Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by!

I just created a profile and one of the options I had more trouble choosing is the account type.
My problem is that I'm kind of stuck between two of them: first of all, I'm an university student. I'm about to graduate, but still I'm a student and studying languages. However, while I've been studying I also had a few significant professional experiences that should make me a freelance translator...I think? I translated articles and a couple local books and also worked as a translator and interpreter in an American college for a year (I'm Italian, btw).

The thing is, I admit it wouldn't be that hard of a decision if it wasn't so obvious how many more jobs I have access to if I choose a freelance account. I chose the student account for now, but I'm very torn and unsure about this decision...So I'm asking for help. What do you think I should choose?

Thanks for your time!
