Courses for freelance translators

I teach two online courses for freelance translators: Getting Started as a Freelance Translator (for beginning translators) and Beyond the Basics of Freelancing (for translators with established freelance businesses). Read the descriptions and decide which is right for you! To read more about my background, visit my About page.

Comments from former students in these courses:

“I took a four-week online course called Beyond the Basics of Freelancing, developed and taught by Corinne. Though I was more or less satisfied with my business, it had plateaued and I wasn’t sure how to up my game. Corinne’s class was exactly what I needed. She asked questions that forced me to focus on the most important aspects of my business and acted as a sounding board for marketing ideas. I especially appreciated that the class included ample opportunity to ask specific questions about nearly anything. I learned a great deal from Corinne and from the other students and came away from the class with a concrete plan and timeline for the next 6-12 months to take my business to the next level.” -Andie Ho

“This course inspired me to do some marketing instead of resting on my laurels and paying the hard price later. Corinne shared her own experiences and errors including the lessons they taught her. Her comments and analysis are always very constructive and inspiring.” -Nelia Fahloun

“The course is part overview of the industry, part specialized workshop focusing on a particular aspect of the job, and in very large part individualized coaching. Neither in my undergraduate classes in education nor in some of the more practical classes I took as part of my MA in English (including the course connected to my assistantship as a writing consultant) did I ever experience one course that delivered as much precise and helpful information as this course.” -Stephanie Ware

Graduates of Corinne’s courses say…

"Although I have been a full-time freelancer for over 10 years now, Corinne's "Getting Started as a Translator" course greatly helped me by requiring me to rewrite my resume and cover letter, create a solid marketing plan, rethink my rates, and improve my online presence. It was an excellent opportunity to fill in some of the gaps that had been limiting the growth of my business. Corinne's individualized advice on targeting direct clients and developing my specialties has given me new hope for my business."
