Now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel Dec 14, 2016

After reading your article, now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel ... Quoting for dozens of posted jobs, only one replied... just to say that he already had a translator.

Your article gives me a new outlook.

Thank you very much.

Jesus.

Another great article! Apr 27, 2019

Hello,

Thank you for another great article! I read another of yours about resumes/CVs, which is also great.

I've been a freelance translator, or linguist because I offer more than just translation services, for 6 months and am definitely learning a lot about how to get started and how to build a business. I see already that I have made mistakes and have stumbled along the way.

Your article is another good reminder to keep pushing, keep applying, keep follow

Hello,

Thank you for another great article! I read another of yours about resumes/CVs, which is also great.

I've been a freelance translator, or linguist because I offer more than just translation services, for 6 months and am definitely learning a lot about how to get started and how to build a business. I see already that I have made mistakes and have stumbled along the way.

Your article is another good reminder to keep pushing, keep applying, keep following up..basically to stay consistent and persistent.

I would echo your comments about networking. It's something I have not done enough of, so I'm making new efforts to network and connect with more people.

Thank you again!

Link not working Jan 12

Hi,

The link to the article is not working. Instead of "vls.proz.com" it should say "www.proz.com."
