How to be a Successful Freelance Translator

How to be a Successful Freelance Translator

As I said many times, specialization is key if you want to be a successful translator. However, that is not enough: you must know how to contact good agencies and end clients, which will pay you promptly and much better.

It takes some training to get acquainted with the best practices. Fortunately you can take practical training at a very low cost (compared to the benefits involved).

If you are an specialized translator, you’ll be able to charge more for your translation or interpreting services. Sooner or later you’ll realize that the best way to promote your services is Linkedin Ads (it has a higher cost per click but you’ll be able to contact a highly professional target) and personal visits to your prospective clients.

These are two courses that may help you get good clients and, therefore, higher rates per word (if you want to learn more just click on the banner):

How to Learn & Memorize the Vocabulary of Any Language … Using Memory Palaces.

If you’d like to improve your ability to learn and memorize foreign language vocabulary by as much as 100%, 200%, even 300% … using simple memory techniques that you can learn in a few short hours (or less), then this may be the most important video course you will ever view.

Believe it or not, it doesn’t matter if you have a good memory or not.

The information in this course will teach you:

•Why memory is like a bicycle everyone can ride (with some minor personal adjustments).

•The real reason why no one should ever be squeamish about memorization or learning a language.

•Why and how some of the most famous memory skills are applicable to language learning.

•How to create a 26 “letter location” memory system based on the English alphabet.

•Unique techniques that will have you literally “tuning in” on your dream foreign language.

•How to separate foreign language words in the most effective manner for memorization.

• A simple strategy for memorizing the male, neuter and feminine genders (depending on the language, this is a process that some people consider the ultimate nightmare of language learning.)

•Two secret ways to use relaxation to aid the memorization process. These two methods alone are worth the price of this course because they will literally eliminate stress from your body as you work on learning and memorizing foreign language vocabulary.

•And much, much more …

These techniques have been used by real language learners, most of whom previously considered themselves owners of a “bad memory” to make real strides in their foreign language learning efforts.

Don’t worry! None of these techniques are rocket science.

Frankly, if you can memorize a short email address or the name of a movie, then you can use this system to memorize the vocabulary of any language.

But there’s really no time to lose.

Every day that you are not using this simple vocabulary memorization system, you are literally stealing from yourself the joy of reading, speaking and knowing another language in depth as you easily expand the natural abilities of your mind.
