Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 20 at 12 noon New York time, Eve Bodeux and I will be putting on our Speaking of Translation hats for a free conference call. Visit our Speaking of Translation website for details on how to connect to the live call; and of course we’ll post a recording on our Listen page afterward!
This call is part II of our series on taking your freelance business abroad. We all know that location-independence is one of the big pluses of being a freelancer, but how do we actually capitalize on it? We’ll spend about half an hour talking about Eve’s five-month stay in France, my two-month stay in Switzerland and Italy, and we’ll check in with Tess Whitty, who is currently spending a year in Sweden. You never know what topics might make their way into a Speaking of Translation call, but we’re planning to discuss logistics (dealing with your phones, mail and money), business issues (using your trip as a professional development and marketing opportunity) and how to integrate your family into your overseas experience (if they insist on coming!).
We’re expecting the call to last about 30 minutes and we do not use it to sell or promote anything; just an opportunity for a fun discussion! Join us if you can, and I’ll let you know when the recording is online.
