Una D. posted a topic in Translating & freelancingHello everyone! Many of you might know me from my webinars on Smartcat Academy. Based on these webinars and the discussions that followed, I’m planning to launch a paying online course to help aspiring translators who need a little more personalised guidance and motivation to set up their freelance translation business. The free webinars we recorded will still be available, but this course takes things a step further by including live group coaching and feedback sessions each week, as well as concrete tasks and worksheets to be completed. The aim is that each week, participants will be making specific steps towards becoming full-time freelance translators (and getting feedback and guidance on their progress from me). So it would be like participating in 8 weekly coaching sessions but at fraction of the price that individual coaching sessions would normally cost. I’d like to put some feelers out there and ask you, as part of the Smartcat Community: Would you be interested in attending such an exclusive, paid course? We’re still determining the specifics, but the idea is: The full course would cost $250. It would include 8 weekly sessions, to be completed before the end of the year, including: Pre-recorded, concise presentations (30 mins max.), one for each weekly topic, An online group coaching session with participants that includes discussions, feedback and specific advice (live with replay available), Tasks or worksheets to be completed by the participants each week and reviewed by me before the next session. The group would be made up of a maximum of 10 participants, with at least 3 needed to run the course You can find further information on my new website. I would love to hear from you if you have any comments or questions regarding this course, or if you think you might be interested in participating. If you could take 30 seconds to vote in the above polls or leave a comment below, that would be great!
Vova posted a topic in Smartcat talksAs you know, we are giving webinars almost every week. We also have quite a few step-by-step instructions written down, and even some video tutorials. This got us thinking: What type of content do you guys actually prefer? Are you of the reading type or do you prefer watching short videos? Or maybe detailed one-hour webinars work the best for you? Vote on the poll above, and make sure to comment on your choice. We want to make learning the ropes of translation and translation technology easier for you! P.S. Thanks to @Faustina for the idea to post this survey!
