Since you have decided to start your own business as a freelance translator, you need to create a dedicated home office. It could be a separate room or just a separate corner in a quiet room. In your office, you will keep all the office equipment, dictionaries, and files you need for your daily business activities immediately available for work.
Learn about what equipment and software programs you need to set up your office appropriately in order to be ready to accept exciting projects from your clients. Since your budget is likely to be limited initially, free options have also been considered.
