Translator Tuesdays August 6

Translator Tuesdays are casual virtual meet-ups to talk about translation: experiences, questions, reading, strategies, tools, travails, and trivia. The hour-long sessions, moderated by Daniel Morales, start at 8:00 p.m. JST on the first Tuesday of the month. Here is what is coming up:

August 6: In August, we’ll share tips on how to build a client base remotely. Do you have experience connecting with new clients/maintaining ties with existing clients from the countryside of Japan or perhaps even outside of the country? What are your best practices?

September 3: How much is your time worth as a translator? It’s difficult to know without accurately tracking your work. In September we’ll be talking about how translators can track the work they do. Do you use a spreadsheet? Other software? Do you keep track of source characters? Target words? The time each project takes? How do you track work incoming and outgoing so nothing slips through the cracks?

October 1: Details pending.
