Where can you find information about setting out as a translator?
Thread poster: TREVOR55UK

My daughter is finishing several months of study in spain - and would like information about how she could go about becoming a translator.

She has reached C2 level Spanish, and has sat her DELE exams. She has had a little work experience.

She is looking to find out, what she needs to to to get work, how much could she charge, and what is the basis if charging.

Would she be better off freelancing or working for a company?

ANY help/information would be very useful.

Many Thanks in advance.
