Secure your future as a freelance translator or interpreter

Strategies for a long lasting, thriving career as a freelance language professional.

Is your translation/interpretation business future-proofed? Future-proofing is the process of anticipating future developments and having strategies in place to avoid negative impact and to ensure your business, for instance, retains its value long into the future. How can you build a business now that will thrive for a long time without causing you undue stress and hardship?

This presentation will focus on three points to future-proof your business:

  • Protecting and improving your business assets (translation skills, continuing education, finances, insurance, company or financial assets)
  • Protecting your motivation and balance (focus, mind-set, self-care, handling obstacles)
  • Creating a practical strategy for the future of your business (solutions for handling risks in the environment, such as machine translation, and developing a growth plan for the future)

All webinars are recorded: if you miss the live session, you will be able to view the recording later.
