Most language professionals are not naturally entrepreneurs and have to acquire the know-how to set up, maintain and enhance their businesses. This two-day workshop* with Sue Leschen is for all freelance interpreters and translators working into and from English – both experienced and starting out – who are running their own businesses in today’s challenging and competitive climate.

This is what the course will run from 10am-4pm, and will cover

More information can be found on our website.
