#BlabbingTranslators: On collaboration with colleagues feat @EmelineJamoul Show notes for Season 1, Episode 8

Greater than 1 minutes

Hey guys!

Elena and Emeline had a great blab a few weeks ago and we didn’t have the time to publish some show notes right away, so let me rectify this with this post. 🙂

Emeline is a freelance translator working from English and Spanish into French. She specializes in marketing/business, health and creative texts. She is passionate about social media and meeting new colleagues.

In this episode Emeline and Elena talk about the following topics:

Collaboration with colleagues and networking

  • Online: Twitter, Facebook groups, through blog comments
  • Offline: through your national association, freelancer initiatives (events, training, lunches)
  • Mentoring schemes too!

Why collaboration is important

  • Less isolation: other translators get you like no one else, they understand what you go through on a daily basis, and can relate. You also get a bigger picture of the industry you work in!
  • Stronger together! We are NOT enemies
  • Learning experience
  • Building a network
  • More chances of getting referred for a job
  • You can recommend other translators to your clients if need be
  • It’s a whole lot of fun 🙂

… and much more!
