Podcast: Website and online presence tips for freelancers

Eve Bodeux and I just (today!) recorded a new episode of Speaking of Translation, and we hope you find it useful! This episode covers website and online presence tips for freelancers, including:
-Why are a website and an online presence important, or not important?
-What are some factors to consider when choosing a web designer, and how much should a website cost?
-What other online platforms might you want to be on?
-How can blogging be used as a marketing tool?
-What does Eve look for in the online presence of people to whom she might subcontract work? Note: we appreciate all of your comments, and we’d particularly enjoy hearing from anyone who has found a translation client through a “non-traditional” online presence such as Instagram, Pinterest, etc. (listen to the episode for Corinne’s story of finding a client on Yelp).

New podcast: ATA59 wrapup

Eve Bodeux and I released a new episode of Speaking of Translation this week. It’s a wrapup of last month’s 59th annual American Translators Association conference. We discuss our favorite sessions at the conference, how the conference is planned, and some tips for anyone who’s never attended an ATA conference and would like to. Here it is! If you enjoy Speaking of Translation, you can listen to more episodes on our website, or subscribe in Apple Podcasts or on Stitcher. Speaking of Stitcher, here’s a plea for tech help: when I connected our show to Stitcher, I was told that Stitcher’s site would automatically scrape our podcast logo tile from our RSS feed, but it didn’t do that, and there is no way to manually upload a logo tile in Stitcher. I’ve contacted Stitcher customer service about this, and their only response was the same information that I had already found in their knowledge base (no way to do this manually; the system will automatically find the logo tile, which it still hasn’t). If anyone has a solution to this, can you let me know in the comments? The post New podcast: ATA59 wrapup appeared first on Thoughts On Translation.
