Joy Phillips: Business in transition

Business in transition

Isolated freelancer to networked translator: most of us are somewhere along this spectrum, and our attempts to master new technologies, find new clients, and understand market trends reflect that process. This trend holds true regardless of language pairs, target markets, or country of residence. Whether you’re hoping to solidify a freelance career, find other translators to partner with, or simply enjoy the company of like-minded linguists, connecting with other professionals offers many benefits. How can we learn from each other to make that transition as painless as possible?
