Are you considering a career as a freelance translator? Are you already working in translation but looking for tips on how to become more successful? In this half-day workshop, Michael Schubert shares his experience from fifteen years as a full-time, independent translator:

• 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.
