Hey! New Translator here!

Hey guys! I’m a 22-year-old IT-Technician from Austria and decided to take up a new side business, Translation from English to German and from German to English. In every school I was in, I was top of the class in English. I started learning and using the language very early, due to my gaming Hobby!

So yeah, that’s me! Any advice for me on how to get my first customers?


Certainly. Find the German-speaking people who need something translated from English to German, and find the English-speaking people who need something translated from German into English. Those people are your customers… and those people are likely to hire you. :wink:


I will try that, it’s just a bit hard to get your first orders with so many offers on the site. Do you do advertising?
