Would like to know Aug 8, 2013

If this is strictly oriented towards Spanish-English? I am a university student in English-French translation with a basic knowledge in Castillan. I'll return to the U.S. after two 2 years spent in France and 5 years prior to that, was living in GA. Last year at the university offers minor in Spanish language. Is there room for someone like me in the market?

Cross-Cultural Communication Aug 8, 2013

Hello, Jo. The sessions are language-neutral delivered in English and are appropriate for any language pair. The market for translation and interpreting is growing at a very interesting rate (more than many other industries).
There are many reports that confirm this statement, but I would guide you to read some of the following

So, in short, yes, I believe there is a huge market for translation and interpreting in your language pair, provided you do your homework, which, in my personal opinion, is:

- ensure you use the tools of today (if translating, then CAT tools and accommodation for other technologies - if interpreting, learning about over-the-phone and remote-video interpreting, for example)

- do your marketing - remember that most translators and interpreters are freelancers, which translates into small business owners

- register at all the major agencies - more and more the job of translators and interpreters is being channeled (for good or for bad, but that is the reality) through the agencies.

And good luck!
