Getting Into Freelance Translation (Again)

Friday, December 04, 2015
We already reached the last month of 2015 and I'm revamping the look of my blog again. Not only for a hopefully refreshing new look but also for more serious purposes. You see, I'm beginning to work as a freelance translator again. Something that I have been kind of neglecting throughout a couple of years, due to several reasons. Though, I really do have a great passion for this profession. Time sure flies... and I don't want to get caught up letting another minute pass by.

Now that I'm back into freelance translations, I realized there are so many things that have changed. You might say that this is one of the positive things in an online world. Everything becomes closer. Even jobs, if you are looking in the right places. Choose platforms that are already known for their legitimacy, and even there you must beware of possible scammers. Take your time to research the companies you are applying to or to find out more about your prospective job provider.

Anyway, back to my blog's new appearance. If you have visited me here from time to time, you might have noticed those new menus on the header bar. Some of them have drop-down menus that will show my portfolio as an Indonesian freelance translator and writer. At least, that is what I have in mind. 

I also would like to share some blog posts to learn and discuss more Indonesian literature from time to time. Why? One, because they say it's never enough to try to improve yourself. Sometimes the best way to learn about certain matters is by discussing them. Second, it turns out that nowadays there is something called online presence for translators and writers. That means, showing to others what exactly we are capable of and helping each other out by providing information on literature and translations. So, I thought what else would represent me more than my own personal blog. Since 2009, I already have shown so many colors of myself in this particular place close to my heart.
