Writing in a clear and engaging style, and often citing examples from his own and others' experiences, Samuelsson-Brown (a translator, he has taught at the U. of Surrey, the UK) describes the range of experience needed, how to bid a job, how to get clients, drawing up contracts, time management, billing, and troubleshooting. He provides lists of a wide range of useful reference sources, a glossary of terms, table of British Standard markup language, and list of agencies in the UK.
