I often get asked for recommendations on software and programmes, so here is my list of tools and programmes that Translating Me would be lost without:
Squarespace - website
Google Documents - store all your files online to give anyone remote access
Design / Photos:
Unsplash - beautiful and un stock like images
Shutterstock - images and music. Plus they have a great design programme too
Canva - simple graphic design
PicMonkey - i create all our blog posts etc on here.
Pages - I create all the workbooks in Apple's Pages
Creative Market - have everything you need for your design. From fonts, to styled images, you name it they will have it!
Online Course Platform
FlexJobs - FlexJobs has over 50 career categories, with jobs ranging from freelance to full-time, entry-level to executive. The best part? They screen the jobs before posting, so you don’t have to dig through shady opportunities. The site currently hosts more than 20K job listings including part-time and freelance opportunities!
Skip the Drive - Good job listings, plus some good resources (and I like the name)
Upwork - Wide range of job categories: from virtual assistants to mobile app developers. Plus they have more than 1 million companies, from Pinterest to OpenTable, use the site to hire remote freelancers.
Toptal - Focused on connecting top-tier former consultants with short-term engagements for high impact corporations, the Toptal Business (formerly SkillBridge) model is taking the traditional consulting world by storm.
Fiverr - whether you want to advertise your services or outsource some of your own business - fiveer can be a great option.
