The ATA Chronicle - November/December 2021 - 14

Before you begin
modifying your
profile, take some
time to review the
updated directory
layout and features.
Services, Education,
Experience, Tools, etc.
The next section ( " Please
include the following
information in my
directory profile " ) allows
you to provide additional
information about the
services you offer, your
background, tools, as well
as the types of payment and
currencies you accept. This
section uses dropdown lists,
file uploads, option buttons,
and free-form fields to
gather your information.
To start, list the services
you provide. For both
translation and interpreting,
you may indicate multiple
services. To do so, use CTRL
+ click (for PC) or Command
+ click (for Mac) to make
your selections. If there's a
service listed that you don't
offer, just don't select it and
it will not appear in your
public profile.
You'll also be asked to
indicate the highest level
of education completed,
whether you have a degree in
translation or interpreting,
and how many years of
experience you've worked as
a translator or interpreter.
Select one of the options
listed for each of these
categories. Please note that
you can skip these questions
entirely since they're not
required. If you leave these
fields blank, the information
will not show up in your
profile. However, the more
information you can provide,
the more times you're likely
to show up in potential client
searches, especially when
they're selecting multiple
criteria to narrow a search.
If you're an interpreter,
this section of the profile
management interface
provides information and
14 The ATA Chronicle | November/December 2021
links for how to submit your
credential documentation
for inclusion in your ATA
profile. Follow the specific
instructions in this section if
that applies to you.
If you provide voice
work, you may include a
prerecorded voice sample
along with your directory
profile. Simply describe the
sample in the field provided
and upload the audio file for
access by those viewing your
profile. Note that when you
upload an audio file, a new
window opens. Once you've
completed the file upload,
return to the previous tab
to continue modifying your
profile. You can also provide
information about what type
of computer equipment and
translation-specific tools you
use (if applicable).
To personalize your
profile, you have the option
to upload your résumé or
link to it directly with a
URL you provide. If you
choose to upload a résumé,
review it before posting to
ensure that it effectively
shows your expertise for
the areas in which you're
seeking projects, and that
the information provided in
the résumé matches what
you say in your profile. You
may decide to upload a
version of your résumé that
you've specifically prepared
for your profile. If you
chose to hide some of your
contact information from
your public ATA profile as
described above, you should
also consider what contact
information you would like to
include on a résumé that may
be downloaded by visitors
to your profile. Note that
the content of your résumé
is not included in " keyword
searches " by users.
You may also upload a
photo to further personalize
the profile. This is optional.
If you decide to use this
feature, be sure to use a
professional, businessfocused
photo that clearly
shows your face. If you don't
have a suitable photo, just
skip this step
Finally, there's a freeform
field in this section
with the label " Would you
like to include additional
information about your
services, education, and
experience? " This field
allows you to add or clarify
any information. Use this
space to emphasize particular
expertise that may not have
been covered elsewhere in
your profile and to highlight
what makes you unique.
For example, do you have
niche areas of expertise you
would like to highlight that
are not included in ATA's
dropdown list of subjectmatter
expertise, or specific
services you offer that are not
listed? If so, be sure to add
them here. Note that areas of
specialization appear in the
next section of the profile
update screen, so you may
wish to review them and then
return to the free-form field
to ensure that you're using it
most effectively.
The free-form information
you add to your profile
appears on your listing under
the " Additional Information "
heading when viewed by
users. It's important to
note that all the text you
enter in the free-form field
is seen by users when they
access your profile (human
readable) and is searchable
by users of the directory
in the " keyword " field on
the search page2
(machine
readable). Keep that in mind
