I’m raising funds to start a language solutions business. Translations and interpreting are not only about words, but also require capturing the tone and the message. I will also be tutoring people in language learning.
About five years ago, I attended an event where translation was offered. (I was not translating.) It became apparent that the people who were translating, although they knew the language, were not using vocabulary that maintained the tone and heart of the message from the platform. My heart was saddened to hear people having such a negative experience as the heart behind a message was indeed lost. Translation and interpretation involve not just words, but also maintaining the heart and the tone of the message.
Another component of my business will be tutoring youth and adults in Spanish, English, and ESL thus helping in their education and ability to thrive linguistically in this interconnected, global society.
I am raising funds to cover necessary the equipment, laptop, software, and expenses to move from just freelancing to actually starting this business.
In addition to the business and professional side of this, by being able to focus on this business, it will also permit me to spend more time with family and arrange my schedule around helping others.
