Taking Control of Your Business

June 15, 2023 / 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm EDT

Learn the basic metrics that you, as a freelance translator, should be monitoring in your business on (at least) a weekly basis.

If you don’t measure, you can’t manage. As owners of a translation business, even a one-person business, we cannot afford not to monitor key areas. Even if we get bored with the numbers sometimes, we must take control of certain data on at least a weekly basis. Otherwise, sooner or later, we will be in trouble.

In this webinar, the presenter will show you which are the key areas of a T&I business to keep an eye on and which are the most appropriate metrics to use in each of these areas. You will learn how to use a simple template that you can apply to your business or adapt to your specific needs.

You will:

  1. Identify the key areas of a T&I business.
  2. Learn the key metrics for each area.
  3. Discover a simple method for reviewing key areas on a weekly basis in as little as 30 minutes.
  4. Learn how to use a spreadsheet template to keep track of your business.
