Take your translation career to the next level

Take your translation career to the next level  in the New Year with one of ITI’s highly successful online training programmes.

Take your translation career up a gear early in the New Year with one of ITI’s highly successful online training programmes. Benefit from being able to take these courses at home or in your own office, supported by expert tutors. There's something for you whether you've recently started to freelance, or are now established and are now looking for ways to improve your business performance further.

ArrowsSetting up as a Freelance Translator (SUFT) is designed specifically for graduates or new entrants to the profession with little or no business experience. Over more than 20 hours of webinars and individual sessions, you will learn how to develop a freelance translation business and gain an understanding of how the translation market operates. The course tutors are eight practising translators who have successfully launched their own freelance careers.



 “Thanks to the SUFT course, I feel my confidence and determination to set myself up as a freelance translator have soared, especially as I have learnt how much previous experience and subject knowledge are valued in the industry. I am therefore very much looking forward to embarking on a career that really pushes my buttons on every level.

I would also like to add that my fellow delegates on the course had so much to offer and were happy to share some of their very insightful experiences! It would be nice to have the opportunity to meet them in person sometime in the near future.

Last but not least, a big thank you to Ann for very well organised and co-ordinated course. The SUFT course is a must for anybody starting out!”

Advancing your Freelance Translation Career moves you onto the next stage – it is aimed at translators who have been freelancing for some time and want to focus on finding premium work with high-quality agencies and direct clients. This programme has a top line-up of highly successful translation practitioners ready to share their insights and guidance.



“Which has been the most helpful topic? For me, the first one with Judy Jenner – the SWOT analysis we did with her was surprisingly insightful and her feedback was excellent… I’ve already implemented the bio and changes to the description of my offering that came out of the SWOT analysis to be geared less generally around qualities that all translators (should) have and to focus on clients’ needs rather than just what my skills are… The speakers were all highly knowledgeable and having permanent access to their webinars is extremely useful.”
