I started in 2007 and worked as a freelancer from 2007 - 2009, during which time I translated mostly legal and financial documents. I also edited the quarterly newsletter for the German Network of the UK's ITI (Institute of Translation and Interpreting). I had to give it up, largely because I wasn't making money from it, and in 2009 I simply HAD to get a full-time job.

I tried again in 2012, and gained more experience in the same areas. One agency even told me I was their first translator of choice for this kind of work. Again, however the work dried up, and, very reluctantly, I had to give it up. 

Now I'm back, and this time I will succeed come Hell or high water. I have made it my mission to find out how to market myself better, and command better rates. I know I am very good at what I do, and I love doing the job, so I am back on a mission now!
