Good news for those planning to attend our next virtual conference next Tuesday and Wednesday!

Hi everybody! As you know, I am speaking at the Sharp End Training virtual worker conference this Tuesday. If you haven't heard about it yet, you can check the info here.

We already held a similar conference for freelance translators and it was a great success! But there were also quite a few people who couldn't come, so this is your chance!

The online conference features a panel of speakers all experts in aspects of virtual working, blogging, client relations, networking, presentations and more.
The format is quite simple; each session is a separate event in itself - to make sure that you don't spend time on anything you don't need. There is a season ticket option - access to all sessions.

All attendees get to meet up for a virtual speed networking session - ideal to build valuable connections and alliances.

The good news is that I am offering 3 free season tickets to the conference! I already posted the info about it on Twitter and going to post it also on Facebook, so if you want to grab your place you need to contact me ASAP.

To be in with a chance of winning a season ticket - access to all areas - including the session recordings - just contact me. The three first people will get the tickets.

Alternatively, if you want to be sure of your seat at the event - write a blog post about it - details here and be sure to tell Jonathan Senior about it to be SURE of a 50% discount voucher for a season ticket.
More info about the last proposal is here: http://sharp-end-training.co.uk/tell-us-about-your-blog-post

Both proposals last ONLY through Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So hurry up and grab your place! I can assure you, it will be a great experience :)

10 worst mistakes I made as a freelancer

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."
Sir Winston Churchill If Sir Winston Churchill was right, then I should be very successful. We all make tons of mistakes. And I am not an exception. My mistakes nowadays may not be as big as they were at the beginning of my freelance career, but I still make them and do my best to learn from them. I also watch others make mistakes and I do my best to learn from them, too.

So here's the list of major mistakes in freelance business I made since 2007. Hope it helps other colleagues to learn and grow. And you are welcome to share the mistakes you made, so we can all learn from one another!

10 interesting facts about the Russian language

In my previous post I promised to follow with the  interesting info about some other languages. So here are 10 facts about the Russian language which might be of interest to those who are studying it. If you would like to have this list in Russian, please contact me and I will send it to you by email. So, what do I find interesting about my native language?

1. Russian has about 500,000 words, but only 2,000-2,500 of them are used frequently. 100 most frequently used words make 20% of all written and oral speech. A high school graduate's vocabulary usually has 1,500 to 4,000 words. Those who have graduated from a higher educational institution normally have a richer vocabulary consisting of approximately 8,000 words.
2. It's compulsory for all astronauts in the international space station to learn Russian, so we can call it an international language of space :)
