To mark this first double-digit episode, I am doing a solo-show, where I am talking about websites for translators. I have previously given several presentations and full day courses on websites for translators and this is the gist of what I have presented and learned during these years. In this episode you will learn about how to easily create a website, for a very low-cost, if you do not have one, but also what you should include on a website where you market your translation services, and how to optimize it so that it will be easier for your potential clients to find it and purchase your translation services.
In this episode we cover the following:
- Why it is important that we have a website
- How to create one easily and affordably
- What content to include
- What not to do with the website
- SEO and website optimization
- How to integrate the website with the rest of your marketing

I hope you enjoyed this episode and please feel free to share if you have any other tips for websites or if you have any questions regarding your website.
