Welcome! Jul 9, 2010

Dear Diao,

Welcome to the community!

This course is a good start for new translators, you can enroll with the "buy" button on the right. of the page:

Also I recommend some videos by Oleg Rudavin for those getting established in the translation business In the video area you will also find a set of presentations on marketing, branding and client hunting that you should also find very interesting. See all videos here:

I also suggest you pay a visit to the site forums: Two that strike me as the most useful for you at the moment are the Getting established forum and the Arabic forum

There are lots of tools and opportunities for translators in Take your time to visit the different areas of site and do not hesitate to ask colleagues or staff for help.

Best regards,

I would like to start as a translator Sep 9, 2011

Dear Madam,

I am Italian and I have been living in Mexico since two years. I have a master degree in finance and accounting and languages have always been my passion. Now I would like to make of my passion a job and start as translator from Spanish to Italian and from English to Italian. I don't have a certification as translator so I would like to know how to start and if getting a certification is a must to succeed in this sector.
Thank you very much.

Best Regards,
Francesca Dell'abate
