A Past ATA President Gets Free Time


Wake up.

Put on your fuzzy slippers, and walk down the hall to your home office.

Fire up the laptop, pour the coffee, and settle in for the day.

Sounds like the ideal work situation, right?

Not for everybody.

Corrine McKay started her career as a freelance translator with her sleeping baby on her lap, cold calling every translation company in Colorado asking for work.

She was a guest on the Move the World With Words podcast and talked all about:

  • Her time as ATA President
  • Her advice for getting into translation as a profession (you don’t need to know more than one language.)
  • Why she got tired of working from home.
