Write For Us

Oct 19th, 2013


Do you want to write for Translator Thoughts? We’re always looking for more contributors to share their unique perspectives on translation, languages, copy writing and freelancing.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re an established translator or a first-timer. The most important thing is that you care passionately about what you are doing, and want to share that passion with other people.

Writing will develop your blogging and copy writing skills. You will learn concepts such as digital marketing, content marketing, SEO and keyword research. You will be able to use this experience in your future projects, whether you work for other companies or start your own blog. Send us an email at contact@TranslatorThoughts.com, telling us a little bit about you, what you are doing and why you want to write for us. Once you are accepted, you can start submitting your articles, which should be well written, edited and original. Although there is no formal word count, pieces generally range between 500-700 words.


On What Topics?

We’re interested in the following categories:

  • > translation
  • > translation theory
  • > translation courses (undergraduate or postgraduate)
  • > technical translation (marketing, medical, legal)
  • > CAT tools
  • > reviews of books about translation
  • > interpreting
  • > freelancing
  • > blogging

We ask for:

  • > Original Content: We ask that posts submitted be unique and original to TranslatorThoughts.com. We do not accept posts that have already been published or submitted elsewhere online (not even on your personal blog) or that you plan to distribute to other websites.
  • > Acceptance: Since we do not compensate contributors for posts, we’re more than happy to include a byline and your brief biog containing links to your website, Facebook, Twitter accounts, which we will promote when your post goes live. Please keep your biog to just 2-3 sentences.
  • > Once your posts go live, please share with your friends via email, your website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and any other social media you use. The more people who view your post, the better it is for you and the better it is for TranslatorThoughts.
  • > By submitting to TranslatorThoughts.com you acknowledge that you accept any form of editing that might occur on behalf of the TranslatorThoughts editorial team.
