Deciding to create a website for your professional freelance translation business is one of the best ways to maximize your business success. Most of our professional lives happen online and it is imperative that we have an online presence. However, as a home business owner, you probably don't have any expertise in website creation, nor the money to hire an expert. The good news is that this by no means that you can't have a professional, functional, and appealing website of your own at an affordable price.

You will find out why you need a website for your translation business, how to create one for free or for a small amount of money, what content you should include and how to make it more visible online. Also, some dos and don’ts in website creation and maintenance will be discussed.

The content of the course was valuable and nicely laid out. It did give me some really good ideas about how to start a successful website.

Some useful information but the presentation was very slow and took too much time over basic points that were not really necessary. The sound quality could also have been better.
