As a twenty-year veteran in this industry, I was delighted to hear that a second edition of this must-have volume was coming out. Corinne really knows her stuff: the book covers every aspect of entering the industry, and her writing style is a joy to read. As an educator of translators for over a decade, it's the book I wish I'd written. And what's more, even this old dog came away with a few new tricks. Highly recommended for those new to the industry as well as those currently working in it.
Wonderful book for translators and company owners of any level of experience. Corinne really breaks down the information in an easy-to-read manner and mentions practical approaches to most any situation in the industry. Whether you're a freelancer or business owner, this book is nice to have on hand as a long-term reference, especially when you need that outside advice on the small stuff!
Corine's book is a must for startup translators and a GREAT aid for anyone (even experienced pros) who embrace translation as a profession. An easy to use companion that's deals with subjects usually not taught in translation schools (nor any Arts and Letters sylabuses for that matter): those related to the art of keeping body and soul together.
