As freelance translators we should always be trying to increase our knowledge and improve our skills and I’m not only talking about our language skills or the specialist knowledge we need to be able to translate well in our specialist areas. We also need the skills required to run a successful business and those skills aren’t necessarily taught as part of degree programmes. There are, of course, lots of seminars available which we can attend. Sometimes, however, when you just have an unexpected free hour to spare between translation assignments, a free pre-recorded webinar might be just the ticket.
Where can I find free webinars?
SDL has lots of pre-recorded webinars on their site and they are by no means restricted to Trados and CAT Tools. I can highly recommend Judy Jenner’s “5 Habits of Highly Successful Translators” and am looking forward to finding the time to listen to Louisa Stockley’s “Freelancers Guide to LinkedIn” myself soon.
