Going freelance

So I just called up that translation agency that I submitted my German Abitur report to so I could get it translated by a “certified” translator; no need to say that it irritated me that I’d have to spend $75 on a translation that I could have done in 15 minutes.

Anyway, I’ve been planning on doing some freelance work in translations etc. on the side for a while, hence I’m thinking it can’t hurt to ask them what their requirements for employment are. Apparently besides the usual background checks, they want me to have a bachelor’s degree which I won’t have for another 3-4 years. Ah well, at least I know now that I’ll be able to do that on the side later either while teaching or while I’m still at university, depending if I get to do my master’s degree or not.

Right now that doesn’t do me any good. I’ll definitely consider doing that later on though; I did some freelance writing for a local newspaper and the political group I used to be the head of before. I’m looking forward to getting into it again. Plus, I won’t need to pay anything anymore for a certified translator for all my German paperwork or my writing; I’ll just do it myself and put the company stamp on it, how neat is that?

    Why don’t you write an article about your experience going to the U.S. from Germany. Or really a general article on how to move to the U.S. and interview people. Make it a little humourous. I’m sure there’s a market for it.

    Yeah, I’ve been thinkng about that for a while now. I’ll get around to it sometime and if nothing else I’ll just publish it here on a seperate page 😉
