“You really teach business, I hadn’t come across that in other courses yet!”

Sara is very knowledgeable and skilful. The course content was well planned and managed. The course was really informative and very comprehensive. I really gained a lot of practical knowledge about the business side of being a freelance translator that I’m sure I will be able put into practice in the future. This is seriously valuable for someone like me. Overall I am very happy to have participated in this course. Thanks!

“I’m always looking forward to your next tips!”

As a fresh graduate I found your e-book really helpful and I ask you to kindly pass it, as much as you can, among senior students. If I were a college teacher, I would have definitely asked my students to read it as a graduation requirement!

About Me

Welcome to Translation Business Academy, the online academy where you can find courses and coaching tailored to freelance translators!

I’m Sara, I’ve started this Academy to share my knowledge and experience, so I can help translators to build the freelance business they want. I started in the translation sector in 2008 as a translator/reviser for a translation agency. In 2016 I became a freelance translator and in 2017 I decided to start outsourcing translation work, so I could found my own agency, Word Atlas. My estimated turnover for 2021 amounts to 750,000 euros, all through organic growth!

While I gradually built my business and a solid client base I love to work with, I heard so many freelancers complain about low rates and dry spells. By the end of 2018, I decided to found Translation Business Academy to offer freelance translators the tools they need to shape their own business. Whether you prefer working for agencies, focus on finding direct clients or you’d like to start your own translation agency, I can provide guidance in line with your goals.
