Thread: How to promote a translation service?

    How to promote a translation service?

    As many of you probably know I am from Belgium (the Dutch part). My native language is Dutch and I started thinking lately about doing translation jobs for people. The only problem I have is I don't know where to start.

    I remember posting threads on different webmaster marketplaces, but that didn't bring in many jobs (just 2 if I remember well) but now I'm thinking about how I could do this better this time? Would making a professional website for just translating English to Dutch be necesarry?

    What would you do if you were me?

    Try fiverr OR oDesk

  3. A website representing your service is always a good plus, but have to promote it and optimize for search engines.

    Try there are listed thousand of jobs, not only for translation.

    Besides advertising your services on webmaster forums, i would consider to advertise at places where those services are needed:

    • (International) business directories
    • Directories/platforms/forums etc. for typical international businesses like land/sea/air logistics/trading.
    • International job sites/ Resume translations.
    • Educational/University/scholarship related sites.
    • Expat related sites.
