Podcast: Interview with Corinne McKay on “How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator” 2

Here’s a new ProZ.com podcast. These podcasts are designed to provide an opportunity to hear the week’s news, highlights of site features, interviews with translators and others in the industry, and to have some fun (see announcement).

I figured many freelance translators would like to receive some tips on how to succeed in their professional careers, so this week I interviewed ProZ.com member and ATA-certified French to English translator Corinne McKay to talk about the new edition of her book “How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator“. In this interview she explains what inspired her to write this book, why freelance translation is not for everyone, which questions freelance translators should ask themselves before accepting a job, which aspects of running her own translation business she finds more difficult and the possible reasons for the success of her book.

You can listen to the interview here: ProZ.com podcast, 2011-07-01

I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did. Corinne’s clarity of thought and sense of humor are really inspiring. You can read more about Corinne’s thoughts on the translation industry and becoming a translator in her blog Thoughts on Translation.

Feedback and comments are welcome. You can reach me at romina at proz.com or via Twitter @ProZcom .
