Work as a translator

29 maja 2015

If we consider the career choice we can pursue, certainly one of the ideas may be learning the language and becoming an interpreter. Today, the world is in a greater level of becoming global, hence the economic cooperation of individual companies concerns different countries around the world. Of course in this case translations are essential to such activity to be efficiently conducted.

We have to translate different types of documents, but also commercial offers, or information that we can find about a company. Depending on what translation skills are needed, we will need different competences to be able to work as a translator.  If we want to be able to translate official letters, we must have a national exam to have the capabilities to confirm it with a stamp that a given translated letter has the official capacity.  

Such activity can be performed only by a sworn translator. If we have this title, we will be able to run the translation agency in a wider spectrum. We can always decide to work in specific companies that need translations on a permanent basis. In these companies, we can count on tenure, but on the other hand, earnings will not always be great as we ran our own company.

On the other hand, when we have a translation agency and we run it independently, in many cases we can face various periods in obtaining orders. It is important in what place we ran the agency. If it is a large city or city with customs clearance, we can count on a much larger number of orders.  On the other hand, we can always decide to acquire orders that can be found on the internet.

In this case, we can be less skilled in the field of translation. For sure it is useful if we can make technical translations, because we operate in a specific market niche. It is also important to decide to study such a language in which we can obtain very high skills. Also, a good idea is to run the agency on the field of less popular languages in Poland.

Less people are study them, and these languages are increasingly sought by companies that need translations.  In this case, we can rely on operating in the largest niche and thus we can expect  to have a very large number of orders. Such activities may be particularly profitable.
