If you’re a freelance contract translator, it can be tough to predict income. Unlike conventional work, freelancing comes with rises and falls on a nearly month by month basis. It might well be that you enjoy a flurry of translation work for a company doing some multi-linguistic marketing one month, but then the next things might dry up.
When it’s time to total up what you need to pay tax-wise, things can understandably be a bit tricky. What’s worse, with an unpredictable income, how can you be sure you’re setting enough aside for any future unforeseen expenditure?
This can be a nightmare when things are at a lull, but possibly even worse when you’re in the middle of a project. How are you going to find the time to calculate all of this when you’re neck-deep in material to translate?
