Summary:As a translator, a huge amount of your time is spent on activities like project management, client management, and accountancy. Yet, this often means stepping away from the activities you love to keep the business afloat. During this webinar, I share my top tips around hiring a team and building out your translation business, from the perspective of someone who has implemented this myself.
Description
Being a translator can mean much more than the simple act of translation.

If you’re a translator, chances are you’re also spending time on accounting, project management, sales and marketing, client management, and many other time-consuming activities.

But beyond scaling up to a translation agency (a scary thought for many of us!), I’d like to explore what can be done to improve how you do business.

Which growth pathways can you invest in to secure more clients and projects, without compromising the quality and integrity of your translations?

During this webinar, I share the ins and outs of building the right structures to support your business. We’ll look at hiring your dream team to support long-term growth, and how to build a business that doesn’t shut down every time you go on holiday!

In this webinar, I’ll share the exact tips and strategies that helped me build a scalable translation business without hiring a team of translators. We’ll review the following topics:

- The benefits of having a team of trustworthy colleagues to support your business
- Types of specialists you might need in your team
- How a virtual assistant can free up your time, and tips on mutually rewarding work with a VA
- The art of writing good instructions and guides for VAs and team members
Target audience
Freelancers starting in the translation industry.
Experienced freelancers who want to expand their clients database.
Outsources who want to get new end clients.
Learning objectives
You’ll learn the exact strategies I implemented within my translation business to scale up (without becoming an agency!), focus on the things I love, and look towards long-term, sustainable business growth.
