Resources for freelancers

With over ten years of experience as an all-round freelance professional, I know my way around. Because my adage is to share, I have compiled a list of useful resources for freelancer professionals that I have gathered throughout the years. On this page you find platforms for online and offline freelance jobs, specialist resources for translators, web developers, and other specialists, and more. This page is work in progress.
