"Build you business as a translator" (a free e-book by Luke Spear)

Freelance translation is a new profession. Sometimes translators find it difficult to take a decision on rates, CAT tools, sample test, etc. And things become worse if they get the wrong advice. It is always better to rely on authoritative guidance than to learn something the hard way.

I came across a very informative book a few days ago. This is a must-read for anyone who wants practical advice on freelance matters. The book is written by Luke Spear, a freelance translator based in Melbourne. On translator's day this year, he decided to make the book freely available on the Internet. I would like to thank him for the kind gesture.

Here is a brief description of the book (in the author's words):


  • quickly find the right hardware and software 
  • price correctly and find out what to expect to earn 
  • market and sell to agencies and direct clients 
  • understand the translation work process 
  • grow your business with valuable tips 
  • quickly locate all the resources required by a freelance translator 
  • create an invoice – a sample is included"
I hope you will find the book useful.
