Hello, I’ve been living in the USA for a while and I was wondering how could I work translating ads. My native language is Portuguese.
Jay’s Answer: You have 2 basic choices: work/freelance for an agency or start your own business.
If you’re looking to try it on your own, look at businesses that are already (or are hoping to be) in Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Macau, Mozambique, Portugal, or São Tomé and Príncipe (countries whose official language is Portuguese). Furthermore, take a look at websites for these businesses – do they have a well-translated web site for English? If not, that can be one of your offerings.
