Wow, LOVED these ideas, thanks so much for bringing them to us +Carrie Green. I got more value out of this 9 minute video than I have out of the HUNDREDS of 1 hour plus webinars I've been on :) Excited to check out Brigitte's work now too.

Lots of good freebie content flying around at the moment, but this is one of my favourites. Fantastic advice for new, established and aspiring authors, by Tim Grahl, the guy who has helped authors like Pamela Slim, Charles Duhigg, Daniel Pink, Chip and Dan Heath, etc. get to and stay on the bestseller lists.

Translators as the new blacksmiths: great analogy
Just as blacksmiths helped move us into the industrial age, our modern-day wordsmiths - translators and interpreters - will help us move from the current age, in which information is merely available, to an age in which information also becomes highly relevant and useful.

Introduction

Translation. Words that work. Convincing content.

More about me: http://www.SarahDillon.com

*************************

About me and my translation activities

  • I'm a professionally trained, accredited and experienced translator.
  • I work from French, Spanish & German into English - never out of English.
  • Attracting and retaining clients "remotely" fascinates me.
  • I especially enjoy being location independent, and wouldn't have it any other way.
  • I admire colleagues with business flair and a sense of professionalism. 
  • I blog occasionally.
  • I love being a translator :)
  • I'm interested in how experienced translators develop their careers and maintain their source and target languages over time.
  • I'm a former director of eCPD Webinars, a company offering online professional development for linguists, translators and interpreters all over the world.
