Blogging translator in ‘Real World’ magazine

Last year I agreed to write another case study – this time for a graduate magazine called ‘Real World‘, which aims to provide advice and guidance for new graduates entering the labour market. The case study appeared in the magazine’s January/February 2010 issue, and in it I briefly describe what I do, and why I decided to do it.

I hope that this case study will help any future translators out there to get an idea of what it’s like being a professional translator and the sort of skills the job requires.  The edition also included case studies of other language professionals, one of which is on the same page as mine – you can download it out here: Real World article Feb 2010

    Wow – fame! Great pic – you look much better than the woman on your right 😉
    Nice plug for ITI as well… and great, inspiring answers – hopefully they will lead to a few new recruits to the profession.

    It’s really nice to see that you’re willing to share your experiences of being a professional translator, with young graduates. The job market is really tight right now and these people can definitely use your experience to make right decisions under these tough conditions. Keep up the good work!
