Interpreting and Translation Tool

Posted on
Your business your world

Here is a Great Tool that I’ve been using to post jobs, manage online glossaries and network.  I’m sure that you will find this on-the-go tool very useful!

Although, I no longer operate as an agency from time-to-time I receive assignments in other languages for both Interpreting and Translation and therefore I use this tool to post those jobs and provide language professionals to accept or decline the jobs.

I also, use this tool to post my online glossaries. It’s just a great tool to have on hand and when you need it.

This tool is available for macOS AppStore and Windows Store

If you sign up and register today, you will also receive a FREE glossary slot… Make sure to sign up and start enjoying this tool.

Seeking an Interpreter Career?

  • Do you know what it takes?
  • Speaking a Second Language is NOT the ONLY skill you need!
  • Do you have Business Skills?
    • Do you have Sales and Marketing Skills?
    • Do you have Accounting Skills?

Working as an Interpreter / Translator is a very rewarding career.

  • Love to work and help others?
  • Love to travel?
  • Love languages?
  • Love working at your own pace?
  • Love being your own boss?

Then this may be just the career for you!

I have been working as a Professional Spanish Interpreter for over 17+ years, as well as an Interpreter Trainer and Entrepreneur.  I’m also a previous Interpreting Agency Owner (2000 – 2014), so I know first hand what it takes to get your  Interpreting Career going!

Many agencies will tell you to “Get Certified”, Okay, so you get Certified, you take the test and then what?  It’s like getting a Degree with no job experience!

Nowadays, many “millenniums”, or anyone for that matter will invest in their career, while working 1-2 jobs vs. working in a field that inspires them, or doing internships in the field that inspires them! By the time they get their degree and they try to apply for jobs – guess what? They are unable to get a job because they don’t have any work related experience!

So, my recommendation to become an Interpreter is to:

  1. Make sure that you are Fluent in both the English and Target language
  2. Decide – Do you want to be a Medical, Legal, Conference, or ASL Interpreter
  3. Learn the; Medical, Legal, General terminology both in English and the Target Language
  4. Obtain Interpreter Training; Code of Ethics, the Do’s and Don’ts
  5. Gain Experience by helping friends and families, or even accepting “basic interpreting” assignments.  When I mean basic assignments I mean: Follow-ups, Doctor basic visits, or even Attorney / Client appointments (only if you are familiar with the Medical / Legal) terminology!
Note: Many agencies will CONTRACT YOU without experience, or without skills, or qualifications; however, you! Yes, YOU! you are putting yourself at RISK, but more importantly, you are putting the English Limited Speaker at RISK!

So, PLEASE BEFORE ACCEPTING ANY ASSIGNMENT – make sure you are COMPETENT and QUALIFIED to take on the task! Don’t just do it for the MONEY $$$…
