Ready To Be.e A Freelance Translator-lformat

Reference-and-Education If you’re considering a career as a translator, there’s a lot to look forward to. Given the global reach of businesses in the 21-st century, translators are employed in almost every conceivable business sector, from banking to museums to health care to high-tech. If you have a special skill or interest in addition to being bilingual, you’re almost sure to find clients who will pay for your services, and you’ll get to work on materials that interest you. Overall, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that job prospects for translators and interpreters will increase faster than the average until at least 2014. Translators are usually well paid for their work, with the most recent .pensation survey by the American Translators Association reporting that the average self-employed full-time translator earns over $50,000 per year. Most translators, even if they work 40 hours a week or more, live a very self-directed lifestyle and can tailor their work day around other interests or .mitments such as families. In publicizing their work-from-home newsletter The Rat Race Rebellion estimate that "There is a 30 to 1 scam ratio among home-based work opportunities." Although there are definitely some unscrupulous translation clients out there, translation itself is a great example of a legitimate work-from-home opportunity. The vast majority of translators in the U.S. work from home, so translation agencies are used to this business model, and don’t think it’s odd to employ translators who work from home. Home work has a lot of advantages for you as the home worker, and for your .munity as a whole. By working from home, you’ll probably experience greater job satisfaction and less stress, since a relatively minor disruption like a dentist appointment or furnace repair won’t derail your entire work day. Most of the time, you’ll be able to structure your work day around your peak energy times and your family’s needs, rather than your employer’s policies. Your .mute will be as long as it takes you to walk from your bedroom to your office and fire up the .puter while still in your pajamas. Not surprisingly, most home workers experience a greatly improved quality of life. Likewise, working from home often has a very positive effect on your .munity and the world as a whole. Less .muting means less traffic congestion, less fuel usage and less need for parking areas. Home-based workers are around during the day, allowing them to volunteer for school and .munity activities and to be available for their families. A study by the International Telework Association and Council (ITAC) found that home-based workers are absent from work less than half as often as office-based workers, leading to greater work productivity in general.
