How To Become A Translator
Translation is an essential concept that enables people to exchange their thoughts or ideas regardless of their language. Translators interpret the meaning of one's written language and relay it to the target audience. Translators must be fluent in at least two languages and typically need a bachelor degree in translation, a language, or other field. Educational programs in translation are available at many colleges and universities and through training programs, courses, and conferences. Employment of translators is projected to grow much faster than average for all professions, increasing 24% from 2006 to 2016. Growth will stem from the increasing number of people speaking foreign languages and the increased demand for translation in homeland security and health care settings.
