But with the right framing, approach, and repeatable strategy, you can attain your dream translation clients.
I have helped hundreds of freelance translators worldwide to rapidly gain clients and build profitable businesses with my Mentoring Programs.
Here’s what you need to know:
There are two things you need to make your business work:
1. Having the right mindset and
2. Taking consistent action.
Those are the two things it took for me to get my business to where it is today.
I've doubled and tripled my income over the last 6 years.
When I first started out as a translator, I was where you are too.
Taking consistent action doesn’t mean that you have to do everything.
There are so many ways to market your services, but you can’t do all of them.
The key is to strategically select the things you work on at any one time.
The first comprehensive results-oriented business mentoring program for language professionals.
There’s no better platform for freelance translators than LinkedIn. You just have to know how to use it.
Why is it the best network?
It’s a business platform: it’s the only platform that you can easily connect with decision-makers.
It’s GDPR-friendly, unlike some other channels.
The organic reach is still powerful, unlike other social media.
It’s more than a CV, but it’s not rocket science. All you need is guided structure, clear goals, an action plan and determination.
In my translation career, I tried many methods.
Through trial and error, I learned exactly what works and what doesn't; and I identified that Email Marketing & LinkedIn Prospecting are the best strategies to get hot and high-quality clients.
I know what it’s like to struggle as a translator:
I had weeks when I had so much work I had to skip meals and showers, while others I was bored to death, with nothing in my inbox but spam.
Months when my income wasn’t even half where I earned before.
Days when my interactions with clients made me seriously doubt the profession I chose.
What I learned from those moments was that my mindset was keeping me growing.
Translators always try to figure things out alone. But they don’t need to. We can learn from others who have already done it.
I want to save you time by sharing with you the LinkedIn strategies that have led me to 5-figure months.
You’ll finally feel like a respected professional, on par with lawyers, financial consultants and others, and your income and lifestyle will reflect it.
I’ll teach you about proven strategies and tools that you can use that can lead you on contacting more than 100 prospects a day, in a fraction of the time! Can you imagine that?
Anything is possible. If they can do it, you can too.
In August I reached 10K turnover! Thank you so much, Virginia! Words can't describe how thankful I am. "FBTF was extremely useful for my business: not only it boosted my network, but also made me reach many potential clients that I could have never reached in person in a so short period of time! I absolutely recommend it: Virginia is the perfect mentor to show all the details and solve any doubts! A unique experience that has changed my path! Words can't describe how thankful I am." - Ileana Cari (Translator, IT)
I did not think it was possible, but It happened for me, and in April I reached a 10K month THANKS TO VIRGINIA.
"Virginia’s program is the safest, non-threatening, most authentic introvert-friendly one I saw yet. If you are ready to grow and learn to market your services to your ideal clients, this program will teach you step-by-step how to do that. You will leave with the mindset and a suite of tools to succeed. Yes, it is an investment, but you will leave taking action. Without action, you (and your business!) cannot grow. The group is challenging and encouraging, and one of the best things about this program. And even though the mentoring takes place in a group, the coaching and advice is tailored to your specific situation and goals." - Catharine Lailson (ATA Certified Translator, ES, EN).
I went for 0 clients to fully booked business owner & project manager in less than 6 months.
"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 always there to help me with whatever I needed and whenever I needed it, and she was always willing to share her own experience and knowledge. Learning from the tips and advice from someone experienced and an expert in marketing for translators like Virginia is priceless."- Mario Gómez Rodríguez (Translator, ES)
I have been fully booked since starting the course, and I can’t wait to continue implementing the rest of the strategies and growing even more!
"First, I would just like to say THANK YOU for sharing all your knowledge throughout the whole program. I appreciate every insight and recommendation. I can’t believe that only some minimal changes and approaches learned from the course have pushed my business. I am also sure that it has to do with my mindset. I am also happy with the networking process with the rest of our colleagues." - Irene Gonzalez (Certified Translator, ES)

I contacted 2,000 new clients in 2 weeks and was able to get paid projects during the program!
"I had tried a couple of things to improve my profile and posted things with a certain frequency. I didn't get many results though. However, Virginia has been able to give me some very good suggestions, we had a very creative 1:1 session and the group dynamic was brilliant to hold me accountable and stick to the weekly tasks. After implementing the things we were seeing in the program I immediately started to get some results and have actually been able to find new clients with actual projects while the program was still going on.

"Doors will start to open for you as you are guided in a meaningful way by Virginia's amazing mentoring skills and in-depth knowledge of our industry. LinkedIn doesn't seem so scary any more, now, and I realised how useful a tool it will prove to be." - Luna Jungblut (Translaltor, FR)
"I had been looking for a comprehensive client acquisition program, more specifically using LinkedIn. I knew that I wanted to grow my business and that it was possible, but I felt like I lacked the tools and knowledge of specific prospecting methods. This is what Virginia offered. I entered the program with no clear path and left with a concrete strategy to follow. Thank you, Virginia!" - Deborah Lüdi Reidy (EN, US)
"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. 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." - Lubinka Dimitrova (Translator, GR)

Thanks to Virginia, I got a huge step further and know what I want to do next."- Mira Dittmer (Translator, Conference interpreter, DE)

The group support was also amazing because you get to have all the tips and experiences of other translators." - Katiuska Parra (Translator, IT)
