A Japanese company has offered me a gig helping translate an Android1 business application + documentation into English. Their staff will do a rough translation, and I will polish it into something reasonably professional.
This is my first writing job. My “qualifications” are availability, cheapness, and a fair technical background. (I also happen to think I can write good prose, but the client didn’t bother to check that.) But still, I want this contract to be a success, and I hope it will lead to more work.
What work habits and routines do I need to establish in preparation for this new job?
