I did it. My business is officially named Cochran Language Services. I decided to form an LLC for tax purposes and for distinguishing personal from professional. When choosing an LLC name for my translation business, I narrowed it down to 3 options, 3 different directions I could take with different benefits.
Ultimately, I went with flexible and safe. Cochran Language Services. I can abbreviate it on business materials (CLS). I can even come up with a creative “trade name” later, and use that for marketing.
On a final note, I used the internet, a translator's best friend, to look for advice on the topic of choosing an LLC name. One fun article by entrepreneur.com caught my attention. It’s lists mistakes to avoid in naming your business. I enjoyed the light-hearted approach the author took. Maybe you will, too.
