My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

Translation has went international.

I have been dabbling in transcription lately. As in, listening and writing out text for video files. I've come a long way from the typo ridden, slow typist I was when I first wrote this blog. I was slow, looked down at my keys (ok, I still do that) and in general wasn't very efficient. So after years of writing - blogging, writing stories, role plays, even simply typing on the fly in WoW forced me to improve.

Trial by fire?

Learning by doing?

Yeah, that was me. But as I was looking for more gigs for my basket of work tasks I found out there is a such thing as a translation company. This place is located in London. They basically take transcription further and add translation to the mix. Well not quite transcription but more taking already written forms and writing them into other languages. Business forms such as legal translation, financial translation, technical translation, and medical translation they do it all.

If I only knew another language (I took years of high school Spanish but I have honestly forgotten near all of it sadly) I'd be tempted to apply. Then again they are located in London. Well, if I ever get big with my writing I can at least hit them up to translate my work!
