How to have a successful first year as a freelancer

Your first year as a freelancer is an exciting, thrilling, terrifying, and stressful time. While keeping all the balls in the air - finding work, creating an online presence, identifying a specialization, networking with other translators and with clients, managing money - it's hard to even find the time to translate. In this nuts-and-bolts webinar, we look at practical steps you can take to lay a good foundation for your freelance business, so that you are operating from a place of confidence rather than fear. Experienced translators may also find this information helpful.
