Know The Language, Know The Law - Play The International Market Right
by Tad Hulse
seems to be a rather significant amount of freelance writers who are
quite hesitant in tackling
more time you spend on-line, the more articles you'll come across tending
to the art and knowledge of writing for international freelance markets.
Although, very rarely will you find them going as far to address one
of the most essential details of sending your work abroad: the language.
Most think that by simply changing your spell-check to the relevant
language (assuming it's another English speaking country, like Australia,
Canada, New Zealand or the UK) is enough to get by. Well, by switching
a few S's and Z's might help some but it won't suffice completely. If
you plan to approach an editor outside your own country and you want
to look professional and proficient - don't fall victim to the common
writer's first mistake of international freelance. Make sure the text
of your article is not only correctly structured, but that the language
and terminology fits into the culture of the country you're submitting
too. Access to the Internet makes this oversight far more avoidable
when writing for international freelance markets, you need to take advantage
of the opportunities
Electronic rights differ from print as well. A common occurrence is an e-publisher will often purchase the electronic rights but is not interested in the print ones. Which, in turn, gives you another opportunity to sell the piece once more to a print magazine or publication. Time can play a major factor with both electronic and print rights as well, where as after a set period all rights are restored to the writer, which again can allow you to resell to someone else. You should always take the time to thoroughly go over the guidelines and understand the various rights before selling anything to anybody. Unfortunately, as a freelance writer, you must mesh the joyful creative aspects of the job with a bit of boring business sense as well, and even more so when dealing with the international markets. If properly executed, you can make a plenty penny over and over again on something you just wrote once. You just have to know how to play the international market right. It is there for the taking and all within your grasp. Good luck!
