Anyone interested in finding out more about careers in translation and interpreting should look out for two important events taking place over the coming weeks as part of the National Networks for Interpreting and Translation programme.
On Thursday 30 October, the University of Bath is organising a day dedicated to Careers in Interpreting and Translating, providing essential careers advice for sixth form students, undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to anyone who may be considering a move to the translation and interpreting sector.
The free event will give visitors the chance to talk to recent graduates from the University’s MA in Interpreting and Translation and MA in Translation and Professional Language Skills programmes, as well as to attend talks by professional translators and interpreters from a wide range of companies and organisations. These will include representatives from the European Commission, the United Nations, the World Trade Organisation and the International Court of Justice, as well as speakers from UK-based companies, and freelance interpreters and translators.
On Wednesday 5 November, the Gateways into Languages graduate placement portal will be launched at the National Network for Translation’s one year anniversary celebrations at the University of Salford. The new portal will be used to advertise work placements to students on postgraduate translation courses, and will be hosted by the National Network for Translation.
