Setting Up As a Freelance Translator: having an online presence helps others learn more about you and your translation services. A website creates a professional image of you as a translator. Your potential customers are most likely to quickly google you if they want to find some info about you. They want to easily access your information, your detailed translator’s profile, your portfolio of the translation projects you completed, examples of localization projects, read feedbacks for the services you provided, find directions to your business and view any upcoming news or events. Your website makes you easily accessible and reachable. If you don’t have an online presence, a potential customer will likely pick a rival that does.
