Greetings everyone and happy 2016! Here’s to a happy, healthy, and (why not…) lucrative year for all of us in the translation and interpreting industries. I have a couple of exciting guest posts to kick off the year, but first, a couple of announcements:

On January 14, I’m presenting a webinar on Translating for the International Development Sector for eCPD webinars. Registration is 25 UK pounds, and includes the live webinar and a full recording. This is an overview presentation, mainly for translators who are interested in translating for the international development sector. We’ll look at a history of development players such as the United Nations and its programs and agencies, USAID and other public development agencies, and private charitable foundations, and the types of translations these entities need. We’ll also talk about some of the key concepts and trends in the international development sector today, and what languages and specializations are the best fit for translators who want to explore this sector.

The next session of my online course Getting Started as a Freelance Translator starts on January 11 and runs for four weeks. I’ve revamped this course into a new format; you’ll get four weeks of self-paced material, including three video slide shows per week and a 15-30 minute task every weekday. We’ll also do a weekly live question and answer session, and you can participate (or not!) in the course’s online discussion group. Registration is $320 ($305 for ATA members) and you can apply at the link above. A past participant in the course commented that “I took Corinne’s course and I attribute a large portion of my success to her. I could not think of a better way to give your freelancing career a big boost than taking her course. Very inspirational, very valuable information, great program all-round!” One group (10 people) is already full, but I’ve opened a second group and it has about five spots left.

My final online course of 2015, Beyond the Basics of Freelancing, starts this Wednesday (November 11), and I have four spots still available. This is a four-week course for established translators who want to make more money, enjoy their work more, pursue new specializations, or market to higher-quality agencies and direct clients.

Everyone in the class receives individualized feedback on four weekly homework assignments; we also do a one-hour question and answer conference call every week, and everyone receives an hour of individual consulting time with me. If you want to get a solid plan in place for 2016, now is a great time to get to work on it: registration is US $350 ($50 discount for ATA members), and you can read the full course description or register here.

The next session of my popular online course Getting Started as a Freelance Translator starts tomorrow (Wednesday the 23rd) and I have two spots left. This is a four-week class for beginning translators: we do four targeted assignments (your resume, marketing plan, rates/billable hours sheet and online presence), four one-hour question and answer conference calls, and everyone receives copies of my books How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator and Thoughts on Translation.

Registration is $350 ($50 discount for ATA members), and you can read the full course description or register here. A previous participant in the course commented that, “Neither in my undergraduate classes in education nor in some of the more practical classes I took as part of my MA in English (including the course connected to my assistantship as a writing consultant) did I ever experience one course that delivered as much precise and helpful information as this course.” Hope to see some of you there!

This course session is now full. I will update my website with the next start date!

The next session of my online course for beginning translators, Getting Started as a Freelance Translator, starts on April 1, and registration is open on my website; I currently have three spots left in this session. This is a four-week course for translators who want to launch and run a successful freelance business, and a participant in the course commented that:

Neither in my undergraduate classes in education nor in some of the more practical classes I took as part of my MA in English (including the course connected to my assistantship as a writing consultant) did I ever experience one course that delivered as much precise and helpful information as this course.

Translators in any language combination are welcome, and every student gets individual feedback from me on four targeted assignments: your resume and cover letter, marketing plan, rates and billable hours sheet and online presence. We also do a one-hour question and answer conference call every week, and everyone receives copies of my books How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator and Thoughts on Translation.

Registration is US $350, or US $300 if you are a member of ATA. I hope to see some of you there!
