I Want to Become a Translator is a new online publishing venture aimed at aspiring freelance translators.

Many language graduates consider a career in this rewarding industry but their college education, though providing them with the skills they need, often does not give them the practical know-how in forging a path for themselves.

Through published materials in ebook form and, in the future, through online courses and other creative approaches, I Want to Become a Translator aims to help young, budding language professionals achieve their career goals.

This project is the brainchild of Mark Daniels, owner and head project manager of Odista Serbian-English Translation Services, a company based in Serbia and providing professional Serbian-English translation services to corporate clients.

Mark is the author of "How to Become a Translator - Breaking into the translation business" - a concise guide, published on Kindle only, to taking one's first steps in the freelance translation profession.
