It all started 3 days ago,when I was frustrated with my career pathing in translation and how to improve myself and my profile on Linkedin, so that I can manage to find clients or recruiters from companies. Then, while I was scrolling on my profile I noticed this woman that I am following. Virginia Katsimpiri and her free e-book about how to find clients and what to do as a new translator. I, immediately, searched her profile on Linkedin and saw her website vmentoring.com. And then, everything changed. I went through her Free Resources and clicked on her first video: "How to Find Jobs and Clients on LinkedIn". I watched it and took it step by step and made the changes on my profile. Of course, I didn't have much hope, because I was thinking "Yeah, sure one video won't help you that much". This is where I was wrong. It changed everything. In 2 days, I started noticing that both my searches on my profile and my followers were going up. Not only that, but I managed to get myself an interview. Without doing anything, just following the steps of this well-presented video, full of advice, practical and immediately helping my profile improve. I highly recommend this video, not only for new translators, but to those with experience.
Thank you so much for sharing this ideal book. It’s my hope it will be of great help to increase my client-base as I am striving day and night to reach out to as many individual, corporate clients as possible. You’re such a kind person, Virginia.
Virginia is for sure the best mentor I could ever had. Being always friendly and self- confident, fully-available, rich in details & very competent, she had led me to reach my goals! I am absolutely satisfied and I will continue regularly to follow her method. I felt really supported and encouraged to follow my ideal clients, and I have already gained some of them! Take action, do not wait!
Virginia has all the necessary skills and passion to help you get where you want, but you need to work hard and be dedicated all along the way.
At a certain point in their professional path, many translators reach a limit, where they have to either continue to chase any odd job, hoping to make ends meet, or scale up and expand their work. Most of us simply don't know how to do that, and this is where Virginia comes in.
She has insightful, hands-on, deeply personalized advice about every step a translator needs to take in order to climb to the next level of their career and forever forget about the insecurities of the freelancer's work, but instead have a steady workflow in areas that they actually enjoy. Virginia's detailed, no-nonsense approach, combined with the ample free materials she shares on her channels, open new horizons and offer an abundance of priceless knowledge for her mentees. I personally couldn't be happier that I was given a chance to receive her guidance and learn how to take the next step in my translator's career.
The support from Virginia was great because, as everything in life there are ups and downs and as a starting out translator you can get quite demotivated but she helped me by emphasising my strengths and professionalism. She also gave lots of tips on how to reply to clients, both agencies and companies. The group support was also amazing because you get to have all the tips and experiences of other translators. Overall, as a starting out translator I really enjoyed the programme; I cannot expect results overnight but at least I have a method to create my own success over time.
If you are ready to grow and learn to market your services to your ideal clients, this program will teach you step-by-step how to do that. You will leave with the mindset and a suite of tools to succeed. Yes, it is an investment, but you will leave taking action. Without action, you (and your business!) cannot grow. The group is challenging and encouraging, and one of » the best things about this program. And * even though the mentoring takes place in a group, the coaching and advice is tailored to your specific situation and goals.
If you are fumbling in the dark, you're willing to tackle the market and its challenges but you don’t know where to start or how to value your services, this is the programme you need!
I would definitively recommend it, if they want to get to the next level - to get clear where they are headed, what they actually want and to go for it with a step-by-step process, that helps you along the way.
The FBTF is truly the best thing I could have ever done to start my translation career. I had the opportunity to learn from someone as experienced as Virginia and the rest of the participants. To me, the most valuable thing about the program was how I felt that Virginia really wanted me to succeed. She was to help me with whatever I needed whenever I needed it, and she always willing to share her own experience and knowledge. Learning from the tips and advice from experienced and an expert in marketing for translators like Virginia is priceless
I loved that the course was relatively short (only 4 sessions) but very concise and practical it's great idea to have the teaching module beginning of the week, and then follow with session couple days later. I appreciate the fact that virginia shared her screen to teach about the search options and also discussed the process she applies when looking for and contacting the clients. There are many courses about ll, but virginia's course is tailored specifically to translators and this is a great added value, because it focuses on their needs and perspective.
The course is mainly aimed at people who have no experience for linkedin. If that is you, this will be interested, but as soon as you know how to use the search filters, maybe you won't learn that many new things.

FBTF was a real challenge, but it helped me to go out from my comfort zone in this particular period (due to Covid) of my professional career. "if you see all grey, move the elephant": that's what I did with FBTF. It changed completely my mindset thanks to Virginia's attitude and competence: I owe all my successes to her method! I have no words to say thank you, Virginia. Of course I would recommend the programme to anybody who would like to scale up! I wish I had this opportunity before, but that's life...better late than never! Now I have all the right tips and tricks to follow my dreams!
Virginia knows very well what you want to get, as she is a translator as well, but she knows very well what your clients want to know from you. She doesn't give you the fish, she is teaching you to fish. Of course, the final results will depend on you, but I like people who make you go the extra mile, because otherwise you don't improve.
