Rank #3: Rebroadcast: Finding direct clients at industry conferences

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, Eve and Corinne rebroadcast an interview with Joanne Archambault, a French to English medical translator specializing in orthopedics translations. By attending conferences in France for French orthopedic surgeons, Joanne made the switch from doing general medical translation for agencies, to doing specialized orthopedics translation for surgeons and orthopedic device manufacturers, within a relatively short period of time.

We’ve added some of our own thoughts on attending client-side conferences (take advantage of those inexpensive international airfares!), and we hope you enjoy this rebroadcast to close out 2018!
