· Personal enjoyment – you have the freedom to choose which translation field you’d be interested in working with. The field of translation is vast. One may become a legal/medical translator, while others may want to become specialized in other fields such as business, marketing etc. A translator that works with numerous fields is more likely to have clients at all times.
· Self-sufficiency – here you have a great opportunity to start out your own translation business and set up your translation rates. The rate depends on the project, length of the project, your expertise in that field, timeline of the project, and other variables that any translator should consider.
· Work as a freelance translator – creating and establishing your working style, making your schedule to accommodate as many hours as you wish to work.
