TRANSLATION CAREER INFORMATION from CILFO Translations

How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator: available in the CILFO TRANSLATION BOOKSTORE on CILFOtranslations.com

How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator is a career how-to guide for bilingual people who would like to start their own freelance translation businesses, and for existing translators and interpreters who would like to earn more money or manage their businesses more efficiently. Using sample documents (billable hours chart, collection letters, invoices, etc.) and real-world advice, the book teaches readers how to:
  • find and keep well-paying translation clients
  • pursue translator certification
  • set rates and payment terms
  • develop translation specializations
  • organize a translation business for success
How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator is mainly directed at bilingual people who either live in the U.S. or want to work for clients in the U.S., but it is useful for anyone who is exploring a full-time or part-time career in translation. Since many translators in the U.S., including the majority of members of the American Translators Association, are self-employed independent contractors working primarily over the Internet, freelance translation is an excellent part-time career option for foreign language teachers, graduate students, at-home parents and semi-retired people. The web-based nature of most translation work also makes translation an excellent portable career; with a few exceptions, most translators can work from anywhere they can get reliable Internet access.

For experienced translators, the book includes useful information such as sample invoices, collection letters and a billable hours sheet, a Resources section with contact information for translator training programs and translators' associations, and information on how to set up your translation business for efficiency and profit.

The Translation Studies Reader: : available in the CILFO TRANSLATION BOOKSTORE on CILFOtranslations.com

The Translation Studies Reader provides a definitive survey of the most important and influential approaches to translation theory and research, with an emphasis on the developments of the last thirty years. With introductory essays prefacing each section, the book places a wide range of seminal and innovative readings within their thematic, cultural and historical contexts.

This already classic reader has been fully updated and revised. The second edition:
  • includes nine new readings, by authors such as Jerome, Dryden, Schleiermacher, Derrida, and Mason, some appearing in inventive retranslations
  • provides an historical dimension, with texts from antiquity to present
  • represents a wide range of languages, from Arabic to Bengali, Italian to Russian
  • explores the interdisciplinary nature of translation studies through readings in fields such as literary theory and linguistics, philosophy and film studies

Theories of Translation: An Anthology of Essays from Dryden to Derrida -- available in the CILFO TRANSLATION BOOKSTORE on CILFOtranslations.com

Spanning the centuries, from the seventeenth to the twentieth, and ranging across cultures, from England to Mexico, this collection gathers together important statements on the function and feasibility of literary translation. The essays provide an overview of the historical evolution in thinking about translation and offer strong individual opinions by prominent contemporary theorists.

Most of the twenty-one pieces appear in translation, some here in English for the first time and many difficult to find elsewhere. Selections include writings by Scheiermacher, Nietzsche, Ortega, Benjamin, Pound, Jakobson, Paz, Riffaterre, Derrida, and others.

A fine companion to The Craft of Translation, this volume will be a valuable resource for all those who translate, those who teach translation theory and practice, and those interested in questions of language philosophy and literary theory.


The Craft of Translation (Chicago Guides to Writing, Editing, and Publishing): available in the CILFO TRANSLATION BOOKSTORE on CILFOtranslations.com

The nine essays collected in The Craft of Translation contain plenty of theoretical speculation about "working in the space between languages." Fortunately, though, most of the authors avoid getting bogged down in abstraction. Indeed, luminaries like William Weaver and Margaret Sayers Peden stick to a nuts-and-bolts analysis of exactly how one word gets chosen over another. And Gregory Rabassa's opening salvo ("No Two Snowflakes Are Alike"), which addresses some of the basic dilemmas of literary translation, should fascinate beginners and polished professionals alike.
