From solo to chorus: Outsourcing for beginners

And then there were two. No, three! No, ten!

Everything you ever wanted to know about outsourcing for beginners!

This video is for all those freelancers who are or plan to be soon so deluged with translation work that they are considering a move into outsourcing. We look at the benefits and drawbacks, and then explore a range of practical issues such as recruitment, communications, guidance, feedback, team-building and managing everything from time to finances and payment orders. You too will be singing along with your team soon…

As a translator Andrew Morris went from singing alone (and only in the bath) to conducting the most harmonious of melodies with a chorus of about 20 freelancer colleagues in just 3 years. He had no notes, no business background and no management experience. The experience ultimately proved to be very tuneful all the same and Morristraduction continues to be in the finest of voices.
