Robert has been a translator since childhood. He has not, however, ever received a degree in translation. These days, his clients include banks, corporations, non-profits, consulates, as well as private individuals.
He started translating for extra money while in high school, and continued to do so throughout college and grad school. It then took him two jobs to realize that, since translation was always the go-to for pocket money, it probably made sense to make a career out of it.
He now earns a living from Freelance Translation, and has recently set up a boutique Translation Agency called Lugano Translations, run entirely with Freelancers.
Thanks to Freelance Translation, Robert and his wife have been able to work remotely from all over the world, from Shanghai to Tuscany to Washington D.C. They currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina, with their one-year-old daughter.
His expertise is in Freelancing, from both the perspective of the "hirer" as well as the "hiree". Robert also has a passion for languages, both for work and just for pleasure.
I could have found the same information by just researching youtube. However, my bad is that I didn't read the course description long enough to evaluate whether it fits my needs
Good advices. Thank you
Very valuable and useful information! I'm satisfied with the course.
A very nice course covering some fundamentals of going freelance. Thanks for the materials :)
Good concepts and tips from who already did it!
I found the information extremely useful. All of the points are explained well, and I felt like the teacher was knowledgeable in this field. I definitely got some great insight that I hadn't previously thought of. My only downside is the audio was a little scratchy, making it difficult to listen to and understand in parts.
