The Prosperous Translator

The Prosperous Translator

ByChris Durban

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Some of the Web’s pithiest advice on building a successful translation practice. Translation is the grandest, most foolhardy enterprise that humans can engage in. Done right, it can also be a lucrative and intellectually satisfying career. Fire Ant & Worker Bee (Chris Durban and Eugene Seidel) have over five decades’ combined experience in the translation business. They firmly believe that skilled translators benefit from adopting an entrepreneurial outlook, sharing insights and experiences, and investing in themselves. In their column in the Translation Journal, they have dispensed no-nonsense advice since 1998 on topics ranging from successfully navigating the freelance/agency divide to finding direct clients, raising prices, kicking implicit content into explicit shape, mastering office clutter and translating in the nude. Readers from translation company owners to students just starting out have found Fire Ant and Worker Bee's advice invaluable. See comments at www.prosperoustranslator.com
