thank you Jan 14, 2014

this is a very interesting and useful article indeed and it covers many aspects that any starter would be willing to know

But my question is if you are already an established translator and you have been working for several years with translation agencies but the work starts to diminish and the agencies are not contacting you like before

then what do you have to do to get your own work?

Very helpful Mar 14, 2014

I found this article very helpful and I came across it just when I needed it. I was banging my head trying to figure out my starting plan and this article put my thoughts into place.

I only have to put everything into writing and start hunting which is the hard part.

But the article gave me reassurance - everyone has started from somewhere!

Thank you!

Vilina Svetoslavova,
Bulgarian-English freelance translator
