Whether you are just starting out or want to take your translation business to the next level, I can help you. Please note that it is possible to find the right steps to take that will provide the best results for your particular business. I have helped hundreds Freelance Translators worldwide to rapidly gain clients and build their profitable businesses with my 1:1 Mentoring Programs.
Here is what you need to know:
There are two things you need to make your business work:
Having the right mindset and taking consistent action.
I can tell you this because this is what I’ve done to get my business to where it is today. I’ve doubled and tripled my income over the last 6 years.
When I first started out as a translator I was where you are too.
In my first years I showed up regularly, implemented as many strategies as I could, I regularly got feedback that helped me figure out what to do next.
Taking consistent action doesn’t mean that you have to do everything. There are so many ways to market your services but you cannot do all of them. The key is to strategically select the things you will work on at any one time. Might sound surprising, but by bringing more structure, setting clear goals, limits to your efforts by niching down, you will get more freedom and better results!
I tried many different methods. By trial and error, I learned what works. I had turnarounds moments in my career as well. Months where my income didn’t come close to the previous month. What I learned from those moments was that my mindset was keeping me from sustaining my growth.
Surrounding ourselves with others who are succeeding and working through our limiting beliefs is the key solution that will lead us to the success we want to achieve. This is possible for all of you too, when you have the right people around you and continue to take action.
I want to save you time by working with you the strategies that have led me to 5-figure months.
You’ll move forward and see results in your life and business when you first know where you are, what you want and HOW TO GET THERE.

FAQ about the Fully Booked Translator Program
In this Program you ll have the chance to get feedback from other colleagues as well and to become part of a mastermind online community. Also, this program is more affordable as my 1:1 mentoring program costs € 1,500-1,800 / 6-sessions. If you need more help, you can book a discovery call with me HERE so as to find out which program would be best for you.
The discount applies to those who purchase the program upfront instead of choosing the payment plan. There is in total a discount as it is the first Launch and would like to make it more affordable due to the coronavirus that affected most people’s work.
Depending on the number of people who apply, we will create a mastermind group based on your needs. I will be able to give you more details as soon as I get some information about the participants’ background. For that reason, you will be sent a questionnaire with simple questions about your background.
Have you even done mentoring? It will be a mentoring in zoom online and the aim is to take you through my process which will help you create your one strategy step-by- step, i.e. setting up specific goals to achieve, identifying our target market and where we can find our ideal clients, then we choose one or two client-acquisition strategies and we start implementing them so as to get the results we want. We will go through your marketing materials, CV, Cover Letter, etc., we’ll create your prospects list and so on. Let me know if you need more information.
One week is the implementation session where we set the next steps and the next week the Q&A Session where you have the chance to ask any questions you might have and get feedback on your work.
Through the mentoring sessions, with specific questions and tools I have created for this process.
That is why I created this Program the aim is to create a personalized strategy and plan according to your needs and receive feedback of course.
The program start date varies, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join the waitlist so as to be notified.
On zoom. All sessions will take place online.
There will be recordings for all sessions.
Yes, that is the point of the mentoring to help you by providing you personalized feedback on your work.
Yes, this is a Group Mentoring Program, you receive specific instructions to follow, actions to take and you receive feedback on your work. You receive support and you have an accountability partner during the whole process. The sessions are Live, but there will also be recordings.
The program will probably not run again this year although that may change. So if you want to be sure you can participate then I suggest you join us now or contact us at email@example.com
This is not a DIY course, it is a mentoring program you get answers to all of your questions, you are taught a process that you are able to implement whenever is needed. The main difference is the fact that you receive personalized feedback.
Of course, the whole process is specially designed to help get off the ground. I had in mind starting out translators when I created this Program even if I took it one step further so as to help more experienced translators who want to scale up. Additionally, I am willing to provide 1:1 sessions when needed to help you keep in pace with the others.
Thank you for reaching out and for your kind words. I understand your point of view, but I think if someone could teach me how to earn 5-figure months, I wouldn’t find it expensive to pay the monthly installment. It is a matter of perspective of course. I am so happy that the participants who already purchased this program didn’t share the same opinion but appreciated the value I am going to share with them during the program; which for me is priceless.
Of course! This Program is flexible regarding the content we are going to share as it is tailored to the participants’ needs. We will go through the website creation and its content, but this is not a perquisite to apply for this Program. There is going to be a whole training and session about LinkedIn and how to use it to prospect 150 potential clients per day.
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.
I will absolutely suggest to sign up because it is a really unique mentoring program. It's something new, interactive, customized and it helps to create a new business mindset. It's not like all the other courses. Virginia is really professional and always available. The best thing is that she is nota teacher, she is a guide: a person who knows well the translation world and canWell understand the needs of her mentees. I am really happy to be part of it and I am sure I will miss our group!
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.
