Are you a freelance translator and looking for courses that will help you to up your game as a professional service provider? If so, I promise you'll enjoy my courses. I will share with you some of the most valuable lessons I've learned over the past 15+ years in business as a freelance translator and you'll learn how to successfully acquire new direct clients and how to land the jobs you really want, all while not working 10, 12 or more hours per day, enjoying your weekends, and actually having time off for vacations and holidays.
My courses are not so much about translation itself. They are about running your translation business successfully, no matter how introverted you are, whether or not you've been in the game for a year or a decade, and regardless of your area of specialization and language combination.
If you are a professional freelance translator (or want to become one), I have the tools right here to get your business off the ground.
If there's a topic you'd love to see here, give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will do my best to get you covered.
I am constantly adding new courses, free and paid. Enroll now to join my online school and be the first to learn about new courses, receive exclusive discounts, and benefit from pre-sales phases. Enrolling in my online school comes without any obligation. If you don't like any of the courses I offer, no harm done. I promise.
How it works? I don't publish courses in the course book until they are actually launched. This is when enrolled translators learn of pre-sales prices. Then I take the course to social media. And only once the courses have actually been launched, do I make them available through the course book.
Some of my free goodies are only available during the pre-sales or pre-launch phases of the courses. I also offer an affiliate program and share up to 25% of any sales that come through your personal affiliate link. So enrolling now is a pretty smart thing to do, don't you think?
I love my group darLINGS Community on Facebook and writing for freelance translators. Have you come across my series The Outsourcing Freelancer? Maybe I'm lucky, and you've heard me talk at a conference somewhere in Europe in the past few years. Maybe you've joined me for a tTime Session (available for free here). Or did we meet while I was still president of the DVÜD, a German association for freelance translators I founded back in 2011?
As you can tell, helping others by sharing my experience and knowledge is something I love to do. But it's more than that. As a seasoned professional translator, I feel it's the right thing to do. My courses are an addition to what you've learned at university, or for and during your first career, for example. The aim is to build your self-confidence and to strengthen our profession across the globe. My motto has always been "If I can help just one fellow translator per year to make a better living, then I've achieved more for our profession than any 'rant' on social media could ever do." It's about empowerment.
