Conference program

The globetrotting freelancer: making the most of your work’s flexibility

Date and time: 14:30-15:30, Saturday, 13 June, 2015
NOTE: This session has already been held

Room: Panorama East

Description:
Ever thought about freelancing AND traveling as a lifestyle? The speakers will demonstrate how it is eminently compatible with our profession.

The two digital nomads will provide tips on how to schedule your trips so they interfere with your work as little as possible, how to best stay in touch with your clients, how to keep your projects on track while abroad, even in different time zones, and how to make the most of what your destination has to offer at the same time. With internet available even in the most remote parts of the world nowadays and with easy access to the money on your accounts, international travel is less complicated and less expensive than you might think.

The two speakers will present a to-do list containing all the important things that you will not want to leave behind. Working while travelling requires a lot of discipline and poses some challenges that you’d better be prepared for. To compensate for less comfort and time, you should arm your laptop, and your smartphone, with some useful little tools, program macros, download updates, and make all the useful settings in advance so they are just a click away whenever you need them, without wasting time on searching for or configuring them on the go. The tips and tricks are not necessarily only handy for translators who would like to take their freelance business to a higher level – becoming a freelance translator and globetrotter. Everybody is welcome to attend this session and will hopefully get some useful advice on how to structure their working day.
