ofertas de prácticas de traducción

Muchos pueden pensar que ser autónomo significa trabajar por tu cuenta, solo en tu oficina. Especialmente cuando hablamos de traductores autónomos.

Sin embargo, no siempre es así. En ocasiones se presenta la oportunidad de trabajar con alumnos en prácticas, como Alba, que están buscando ofertas de prácticas de traducción. Esto tiene ventajas para ambas partes: a la vez que le enseñas al alumno los aspectos de ser autónomo que se esconden entre bambalinas, también aprendes a trabajar y gestionar un equipo y proyectos.

Un tandem perfecto.

Hoy le cedo esta entrada del blog a Alba para que os cuente cómo es trabajar con un autónomo. ¡No os perdáis ningún detalle!

translation and interpreting internship

(You can read the post in Spanish here.)

The freelance life may be a bit lonely sometimes.

It hasn’t been easy. I still remember having worked until the wee hours of the morning. Sometimes working on my own business, sometimes working against a deadline (it sounds familiar, right?) I had to face people telling me that I was crazy, that I shouldn’t quit my jobs, that this project was very risky. Yet, my wee baby, this little project was born.

Resolution

As 2015 is coming, it is now the ideal moment to think about what we want to improve as professionals and the objectives that we want to fulfil for the next year. As translators and interpreters, we may share some of these resolutions and maybe we can be inspired by other translators’ ones; that is why I have decided to gather my 10 New Year’s resolutions.
