Freelance Translators in North America

Freelance translators in North America work independently in the translation industry. Freelance translators often work through North American translation agencies and translation companies to supplement their business and income and usually have their own roster of clients.

Leave the translation to a freelance translation expert!

Professional freelance translators have an understanding of linguistic issues and recognize the value of getting it right. Of course, there remains the challenge of finding the translation resource that is best suited to a particular language pair and/or subject matter. To assist the buyers of translation services in identifying a competent translation resource, the American Translators Association (ATA) has published a guide to buying translation services: "Getting it Right", the ATA guide to buying translations.

"Getting it Right" is an ATA client education booklet available in print and online in pdf format. By applying even half the tips in this guide, you will improve your chances of getting a translation that works.

For non-linguists, buying translations is often a source of frustration. The suggestions in this guide are aimed at reducing stress. Besides getting it right, there are steps buyers can take to ensure they get quality translation from a freelance translator. Check out the online Quality Translation Buying Guide.

To identify a competent freelance translation resource, you can request a quote through the Translation Classifieds quote service or contact the freelance translation resources listed on the Free Translation Classifieds website.
