Getting Started in Translation - A workshop by Michael Schubert

What are the core skills you need to become successful?
How can you best market yourself and find clients?
How do you set your prices and escape the bottom of the market?
Once you establish your translation empire, how do you keep it thriving?
Workshop attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and participate in the discussion! There will be a 15-minute break with refreshments.
