Summary:Create a multilingual website in your language pairs to improve your online visibility. A website allows clients to come to you, instead of you to them. You can create your own message and you look professional. You can show samples of your work and give potential clients an easy way to contact you.
Description
Deciding to create a website for your professional freelance translation business is one of the best ways to maximize your business success. Most of our professional lives happen online and it is imperative that we have an online presence. However, as a home business owner, you probably don't have any expertise in website creation, nor the money to hire an expert. The good news is that this by no means that you can't have a professional, functional, and appealing website of your own at an affordable price.

You will find out why you need a website for your translation business, how to create one for free or for a small amount of money, what content you should include and how to make it more visible online. Also, some dos and don’ts in website creation and maintenance will be discussed.
Target audience
• Freelancers starting in the translation industry.

• Experienced freelancers who want to expand their clients database.
