SUFT Testimonials


As a new freelancer, finding and working with clients is so much easier when you're equipped with the tools and knowledge the SUFT course provides. If you're unsure how to get started as a freelance translator, start with this course!  


Katie Gibson


I have been very impressed with the quality and depth of the material provided on this course, both via webinars and supporting information - and we’re only a week in!

I have attended many, many courses over the years, and I would struggle to think of one which represents better value for money than SUFT. Having completed an MSc in Translation Studies, and with a career in IT behind me, I thought this course would simply help me ensure I was plugging the odd gap, but it is already clearly much more valuable than that
