GS 4311 - The Language Services Business for Translators & Interpreters

Translation and interpretation are professions that typically require their practitioners to set up businesses on their own. This course addresses the key issues involved in being an independent contractor in the language industry, including how to acquire clients, how to price professional language services, how to estimate different types of service, and how to manage different client relationships, from government entities to private individuals. The course also analyzes the differences between working directly for clients and working with translation agencies or as a staff translator or interpreter, where it is crucial to know how to work on a team with other language professionals and content experts. The course also covers basic standard business practices in the language industry and business codes of ethics.
