I have worked as an in house translator for over 7 years and have done a limited amount of freelance translation as well as simultaneous interpretation (English into Spanish). Now I would like to establish myself as a freelance translator.
Before sending mass emails including my resume and cover letter, I would like to know which computer programs would translation companies expect freelancers to master. For instance, I have never used machine translation programs. If I donít mention that I use them, am I significantly diminishing my chances? Also, I am proficient in Word for PC and Mac, Internet, Adobe, but thatís it. What others are an absolute must?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. With best wishes,
