Video interview on “The Successful Linguist”

The Successful Linguist
Going off at a tangent today, I’d like to share an interview that I did for Moira Monney on her blog, The Successful Linguist. Moira has launched an exiting series of video interviews with translators, to get to know them at a personal level and also to discuss interesting topics for new and seasoned translators alike. She asked me what I think about:

  • finding your first clients
  • agencies versus direct clients
  • specialisation
  • setting your translation rates
  • CAT tools
  • work/life balance

    Great interview Emma… I have no idea why you don’t think you’d be a good presenter! I think you come across really well… and even though we’ve been chatting on and off for a year or so now I really do feel as though I know you now!

    • Thanks, Paul. Actually it was some 4 yrs ago when we discussed a possible presentation at an SDL roadshow in Madrid. I’m more confident now at a professional level, plus I’ve got a few webinars tucked under my belt so maybe that comes over in the interview? It doesn’t change me as a person, though. I’m still an introvert at heart!

        Wow… how time flies! You come across as very confident and relaxed… but I can relate to what you’re saying. Maybe we can discuss it again soon?

    A great and interesting interview.
    I find it very interesting to learn about the background and path that lead someone to becoming a translator, and your story is really nice.

  4. Thanks for sharing your experiences and your wisdom!

  5. Many thanks Shai and Lucía for your positive feedback!

    Loved it. More than anything, the face-to-face feeling and listening to you talk, with your lovely British accent (which I lost waaaay back, as a teenager, after a year of senior high school in the U.S., to the chagrin of my then British English teacher, [smile]). Thanks for sharing.
