Translator Reactions

We made a post about interpreter reactions a few months back. It’s only fair we did one for translators as well!

Here are some ways translators may react to situations they encounter every day:

When someone calls you an interpreter


When your friends think you live a glamorous translator life


When you attend a conference


When someone says they’ll use an online translator to translate a document


When a client gives you a 40,000 word project and they want it the next day


When you submit a project 1 minute before the deadline


When your CAT tool keeps crashing


When you take on more projects than you can handle


When a proofreader doesn’t agree with your translation


When you turn in a project early and don’t have to work the weekend


When you meet a fellow translator


When you tell someone that you’re certified


When you’re asked to translate a piece of literature


We offer online training options for legal and medical interpreters as well as translators. Programs include training courses, tests, linguistic resources, training guides, and Skype lessons with interpretation instructors. Our training will benefit those who are aspiring interpreters, interpreters who want to prepare for a certification exam, or certified interpreter certification exams. Training options are available in Albanian, Arabic, Cantonese, French, Haitian-Creole, Hmong, German, Korean, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
