Lubinka Dimitrova, Business Translator/Subtitler

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.

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!

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!

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.

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

FOR THE ULTIMATE LINKEDIN PROSPECTING SYSTEM COURSE

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.

Take action, do not wait!

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. Yet, this course is interesting to take, because virginia also explains how to define your target audience and how that can contribute to expanding your network on linkedin.

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. And there's always room for improvement! I recommend signing up for this course, but first you need to be very sure of what you want.
