Biljana Stojanovic: Translator, engineer, scientist 


biljanaBiljana Stojanovic is an English to Serbian translator specializing in chemistry, pharmaceuticals, and engineering. She is a ProZ.com member and part of the Certified PRO Network (CPN).home-cpn


I started as a freelance translator when I was almost 50. After 25 years of work in the Pharmaceutical industry, participation in scientific projects, development of new drugs, a lot of analytical experiments and document creation, I decided to change careers and to do something that I always wanted: to translate. So I left the “safe” job and finished the one-year seminar for scientific, technical and court translators. It helped me to gain confidence, but not to find jobs. I started translating various materials for my friends and acquaintances, but it was far from enough to make a living.


Almost two years passed, with very meager results. Then I realized I had to change something. I browsed the web and discovered very useful posts, podcasts, and webinars (Thank you very much, Corinne McKay, Tess Whitty, Marta Stelmaszak, and, of course, Dmitry Kornyukhov!) That was it, I was not alone anymore… About a year ago I discovered ProZ.com, and I think it was the beginning of my new career.

How do your top three look?


On ProZ.com, most work gets passed through the directory. Clients search for specialists, evaluate their profiles, and contact candidates directly, using directory or profile messages.


top3


So the first three things a potential client will see when they come across you in the directory are your profile picture, the name you use on the site, and your tagline. This is your chance at a first impression, to attract a client's attention and get them to come to your profile to see more about what you have to offer.



  1. Profile picture: Camera-facing shots where your face can be clearly seen, with a smile, work best. 

  2. Name: Use your first and last name. Remember you are representing yourself professionally, and clients like to know who they are dealing with.

  3. Tagline: Try to summarize what makes you stand out in your area(s) of expertise or otherwise makes you different. No need to state your language pairs, since directory searches are done by language pair already. Your tagline is your mini-elevator pitch to clients to bring them to your profile to see more.


stand_out_more


Good clients are looking for specialists. They also like to see indications that you are a real person and a real professional. If your services, experience, and other relevant information is not clearly and attractively displayed in your profile, there are some clients who may not even bother contacting you to ask for more information.
