Freelance Translator

Flexibility in Work Schedule

Students looking for a career that offers interesting challenges along with a flexible schedule will find a role model in Jessica Cohen, a freelance translator of Hebrew and English.

Her bilingual abilities blossomed at age 7, when her family moved from England to Israel. Her talent led her to a literary translation job where she translated a book-length novel from Hebrew to English.

Working from home, she interfaces with clients via e-mail and fax. Translating always proves interesting, and as a freelancer, she enjoys a lifestyle that gives her flexibility to schedule her time as she chooses.
