After a rather long break from blogging – as a result of work commitments in the form of practically every customer I have ever had all wanting a translation in February – in this post I would like to draw your attention to a fairly new series of podcasts entitled “Marketing Tips for Translators“. In each of the approx. 30-minute podcasts English to Swedish translator, Tess Whitty, interviews an experienced translator and asks her (I write “her” because the interviewees were all female so far) about her marketing strategies, about how she started out and about which marketing technique works best for her.
For translators who spend most of their time reading and writing, the podcast format comes as a breath of fresh air. Podcasts are also great for those of us who love or have no choice but to multitask: so far I’ve listened to them whilst travelling, doing the housework and waiting to pick up my daughters from afternoon activities. You can download and subscribe to the podcasts for free from the iTunes store and the links mentioned during the podcasts and further information about the interviewees can be found on the Marketing Tips for Translators website.
Well done to Tess Whitty on this new project which is sure to help new and experienced translators alike!
