Any stage of your career

Formerly Clare’s popular “CV Clinic”, this CV and Business Review covers your CV but also a look at your online profile and website if you have them. Aimed at those applying for work as a Translator, Interpreter, or Project Manager within the language industry, at any stage of their career. By the end of the session, you will have lots of ideas for your revised CV and understand how to show your achievements and experience clearly and to your best advantage. There’s also time for questions and discussions on getting started, marketing, and of course, rates. Drop us an email outlining what you’d like to discuss, and we’ll respond quickly.

Clare Suttie has run Atlas Translations Ltd since 1991, offering client-focussed language services. She is an expert in project management – including urgent work and unusual languages, and encourages the promotion of professional linguistic services. Speak to one of the team on our livechat (it really is one of us!) and we can help you arrange a session with Clare.

One to one sessions, for a charitable donation

Atlas offers training programmes for translation service users and providers, as well as training for Translators, Interpreters and Project Managers.

Atlas has run a Work Placement Student Programme since 1993. Clare was inspired to run this Review service after many years of helping students to leave the company with a much-improved CV, leading to greater chances of securing a job within the highly competitive language industry, and after receiving very mediocre CVs from clearly talented people who weren’t selling themselves as well as they could!

Clare offers individual one to one sessions, with 30 minutes of preparation work and a 30 minute session by phone or in person, followed up with a written report of all suggestions. Group sessions are available upon request.

Clare hosted a CV Clinic as a webinar to the Institute of Translation and Interpreting’s Japanese Network, J-NET. Read more here.

Positive Feedback from the Business Reviews

I felt stuck before our chat. I felt that I have achieved what I could on my own, relying solely on my abilities and resourcefulness. However, without having a mentor or anyone who would have been willing to advise, I was unable to take my career to the next level. The suggestions and information received gave me enough motivation and direction to start anew. I feel way more confident now to refuse what is not in line with my values and go for what I do believe in.”

“Clare reviewed my CV as part of her CV clinic. I liked the idea of getting the advice of an established agency director, and our session exceeded my expectations. The feedback she provided was in-depth, useful and easy to implement. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the clinic included a review of my LinkedIn and website. She took the time to answer my questions and took another look at my CV when I’d made the changes she suggested. I now feel more confident when applying to agency clients. Taking part in one of Clare’s CV clinics is a worthwhile investment, and all it costs is a small charity donation.”

“What a difference a conversation with the right person can make! Clare offered a CV review but our hour long session resulted in so much more than an improved CV. She selflessly offered her insight into the translation industry which she clearly knows inside out. What I find wonderful is that Clare genuinely cares about the freelancers who work for Atlas Translations.”

“Clare’s CV clinic was probably one of the best investments I could have made in my business. Clare took the time to go through my CV, my LinkedIn profile and my website copy. She identified what I had done well and what I could improve, but also gave me actionable tips and advice I could implement straightaway. This CV clinic provides so much more than what it says on the tin; Clare gave me expert feedback on my whole professional presence. Thank you Clare!”

“Clare recently reviewed my CV, LinkedIn profile and website as part of her CV clinic. I found the whole experience really useful. Her encouragement and personalised feedback made me feel much more confident about my CV and applying to agencies. It was great to find out exactly what translation agencies are looking for from an experienced agency director. She also answered questions about other aspects of the translation industry from the agency perspective and created a safe space where I could ask anything. She even took another look at my CV once I’d made the changes. And all she asked for in exchange was a charity donation!”

“I recently took Clare up on her offer of a translation CV clinic and was impressed by her commitment and the diligence with which she critiqued each aspect of my CV, LI profile and website. Clare offered considered, insightful feedback with actionable points that gave me a fantastic springboard for making improvements, and she was very generous with her time. This formed part of a charitable initiative, hence Clare did not actually benefit financially herself from her hard work but donated her fee to a local museum – making the offer all the more impressive. I would happily work with Clare and her team and wish them all the best for the future.”

Clare’s review of my CV was incredibly helpful, thorough, and added a lot of value to it. She also gave a good look at my LinkedIn profile and website, pointing out their strengths and weaknesses, from the point of view of an experienced professional who runs a successful LSP. And she did all that while raising funds for the Fairlynch Museum! I am very grateful for Clare’s comments and a huge admirer of the work she does helping translators and her community. Thank you, Clare!

I was impressed by Clare’s enthusiasm for the language services industry. It is clear that she is experienced and knowledgeable, whilst friendly, genuine and approachable, and it is lovely that she is happy to go out of her way to help others succeed. It was a pleasure to work with Clare.

Clare is an excellent Director who enjoys sharing her solid knowledge of language project management. Not afraid to empower employees while giving them appropriate support, the success of Atlas is also due to well-oiled processes which keep being adapted to the latest technology available and the market needs but also maintaining good relationships with numerous freelancers.
