Entrepreneurial Linguist Site: Live


While we are still in the final stages of editing our "Entrepreneurial Linguist: The Business-School Approach to Freelance Translation" book, we have received so many inquiries and pre-orders that we have created a website with more information, where you can also add yourself to the pre-order list. It contains a tentative table of contents, information on what an Entrepreneurial Linguist is, etc. Check it out here. We are currently working on a cover design with the assistance of our fantastic IT guru Thomas Gruber and our amazing photographer friend Ulf Buchholz. It might look like the image above, but the jury is still out. If any of our readers have any ideas, we'd love to hear them, and who knows, perhaps we will use it! It's the new area of collaborative ideas...

I'm already loving the cover, even if it's not the final one! :-)
Count me in among those who look forward to have a copy of your book.

I've been following your blog for a few months already, and I really enjoy reading your posts, even though I don't have many opportunities to apply your tips and suggestions (I'm still studying, in Argentina).

I like the cover, but I feel the linguistic part is missing from it, except for the word "linguistic", of course :-)

@Fabio and @Adela: thanks for your comments. Adela: good point about the cover not being very linguistic-looking. Good feedback. Actually, all the coins on the cover are from different countries, so we thought we'd bring the languages element in that way. However, it's not very easy to see, so perhaps we will reconsider or it might be easier to see on the final cover. We will continue to play around with it.

I love the cover!
