Technology and globalization are changing the environment for translators today. Is it possible to maintain a viable career in a climate of increased automation of translation and downward pressure on rates?
Nicole Y. Adams' book brings together the experiences of successful language professionals who have explored ways of capitalizing on their different skills to enter new areas and ensure viability and variety in their working lives.
Among other ideas, learn how: • machine translation can be on your side • a translator can be creative • language teaching is not confined to the classroom • voiceover is not the exclusive domain of actors • advanced technical skills can give you the edge • a translator can become the hero of a cartoon strip.
This book will inspire today's translators and set them up for 'success beyond translation.'
