Tips for Freelance Translators

When we hear “public relations”, we usually imagine celebrities and large corporations and do not associate them with a freelance translator. Freelancers could think that the PR would be unimportant for them. Today we have a great number of courses how to work at a translation market, but we can hardly find any information about the PR for a translator. Marketing is naturally important, but we must take into account that while the marketing tells us about a brand, the PR reveal hidden information.

Every business regardless of its size depends finally upon its reputation to survive and prosper at the market. A client and journalistic opinions concerning the business can have a great impact on it. In fact, the reputation can be one of the most important assets of the business at the modern competitive and unstable market. Moreover, the successful PR are the biggest effect that can be achieved for the smallest amount of expenditures. The public relations are ideal for the freelance translators who want to increase traffic of their web-sites, lure customers, make their brands more popular, as well as generally improve their reputation. It is especially useful if a translator specializes in the technical translation i.e. he or she can perform an adequate translation of any technical materials.
