Thanks for such a comprehensive, helpful and encouraging site! I’m researching the possibility of starting up as a freelance translator. I have no formal qualifications as a translator, but I do have a broad understanding of industry, and am “fairly” fluent in two foreign languages. Having read what I could of what you have written, I’ve decided to “have a go”. Thanks for the encouragement your words and thoughts have given! ~ Sincerely yours, Jon M.
I am a pre-retiree about to launch into the business of online translations and found your site thanks to my spouse, who has been voluntarily doing the required research for me. After reading the sample of your book - Tips for Translators – I just had to buy it, which I did. Thank you for this great service you have done in sharing this product of your experience. Congratulations and good luck with your future ventures. ~ Ken B.
I am interested in becoming a full-time translator. I am not a professional translator, and I am sure that I have a lot to learn, as the precious notes that I read this evening from your valuable website. Thanks for all the tips and information that you put down there. I really don’t know how to start. I spend my time thinking, planning once and over, and over again on how to contact agencies, what to write in my letter, how to contact other translators. I am afraid of the fact that I am not a “professional translator”. I am afraid about my English level for writing. Finally, I appreciate the time that you dedicated for including the recommendations that you left for us in your Linguabase Website, and I congratulate you for the good job that you have done. May you continue to be quite successful and blessed in the work that you do. ~ Yours truly, Fernando R.
It’s a pleasure to meet you! I bought your book a couple of weeks ago. You can notice that the model of my presentation letter matches your suggested model in the book.
