On Idustry Experts…

Back again! After weeks of silence...apologies about that; bad time management. There are news about MATCH translations. On the website front I am stuck...I can't find the time and the inspiration to develop it properly and so I decided to postpone the putting it online to June. I will work on it before my internship begins. On the registration side, I am stuck too. As i am planning to set up my company on my own, and since I would like it to be a limited company, I will have to wait until October. Then it will be possible to register a company as a sole owner. Otherwise I would have to find someone to act as company secretary....i did think of asking my fiancé, but I that would be quite degrading. But if you would like to find more about company 'formats', look at this website, it is very helpful

It's a great site in general and it has a lot of information about legal structure. Nevertheless, I feel that hiring an accountant to deal with all the paperwork is indispensable. I will get to that in late September when I am back at Warwick and I will try to find and upload information about how much accountants cost.

So, back to the new developments. To recap, I am stuck with registration issues and I am stuck with the website. I did get some advice however from some 'industry experts' on the translation business. Here in Madrid I work at the University's language lab and I just asked my boss for advice on my idea. It was a very good talk and I got a lot out of it. I won't go into the specifics, but I would suggest to anyone planning to get started to make a list of all possible and even stupid questions and ask them to people who are already in the business.

In fact i am planning to take it a step further and actually ask those same questions to a future competitor of mine. Having a Warwick email address will help me with that, I won't even have to pretend to be a students asking for information for my coursework ;-). I'll let you know how that goes.

Gotta run to class now, ciao!

    Hi Mattia,

    First time I’ve visited your blog… It was a brilliant idea to have this blog as a way of pushing yourself to follow up on your idea!!!

    I think the idea of going around and getting answers from people already in the business is good, can’t wait to hear what your study will reveal…

    About the website, don’t give it too much thought, just relax, you will get inspired… That kinda sounds weird but I think we get the most brilliant ideas at points we least expect, you could easily get inspired while your in the shower or your out by the lake or when your home watching T.V or your at the bar having a drink with the boys!!!! Its worked for me…

    Gotta run now but I’ll keep checking for updates,

    Regards,
    Chris.
