Summary:The first and foremost task (and often a challenge) for every novice freelance translator is finding clients. That's exactly what we'll be talking about.
Client Hunting
ProZ.com offered a series of webinars on Internet Freelancing ran by Oleg Rudavin, successful freelancer, ProZ.com moderator and trainer. The webinars have concluded, but users can access the recorded videos by making a payment to this session.

The videos deal with freelancing and, specifically, freelance translation starting from the initial steps (assessing one's suitability for freelancing, taking first steps, etc.) essential for beginners to sophisticated topics like viability of outsourcing or starting a translation agency. The entire program is listed below.

Video includes types of clients and how they differ; the decision-making process characteristic for various clients; the sometimes longish "production chain" - how to develop strategies of getting clients and tactics for working with them.

The ultimate purpose of the video is to arm freelance translators with "weapons" necessary to turn into expert client hunters :-)
