Try fiverr OR oDesk
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?
A website representing your service is always a good plus, but have to promote it and optimize for search engines.
Try freelancer.com 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.
