Translators Brings The World Together


Visitors: 178

It would be difficult to imagine UN General Assembly session in New York without a cadre of translators. To be sure, the traffic in the New York classifieds increases in the summer months, reaching a fever pitch prior to the meetings in October. The need for translators is great in the Big Apple year round as it is Switzerland but is especially acute in New York. The emergence of developing nations puts a greater emphasis on translations into myriad languages with the greatest demand for translators from Asian languages most notably Chinese. Also there is greater need for Indian language translators as the U. S. campaigns for its inclusion in the Security Council.

Translators may freelance during the most hectic times but there is always a need for full time translators, too. Freelancers are paid approximately $25 per hour; full-time translators can command about $60,000 per annum. Many graduate students in languages will gravitate to part-time, hourly work to defray educational costs. Language teachers will also augment their salaries as free lancers.

But New York is not the only city where translators are in demand. With the increase in globalization and competition for trade fierce, there is a need for translators in corporations and every level of government. States send trade delegations to developing countries to seek outlets for their goods and therefore create jobs back home. Government entities also wish to woo foreign corporations to their locales for similar reasons. Hence the need for effective communication is vital. Online classifieds are helpful in discovering where the jobs are. In the U. S. , as you might imagine with the burgeoning Hispanic population, English-Spanish translators are essential in government agencies and critical for corporations to function. And let’s not forget politicians’ needs to communicate to constituents at election time. Classified ads for freelancers abound at these times.

Retiring baby boomers are an adventurous lot. More than ever they are traveling to foreign countries. As this is a boon for multi-lingual tour guides, the travel agencies will also employ translators to accommodate customers. Then, too, customs offices, consulates and embassies employ full time translators. A country’s various security organizations rely on trained translators as well; this is likewise true for the military. Citizens often immigrate to foreign countries to live as ex-pats. Various official documents must be translated into the country’s language. This includes things like birth certificates, divorce decrees, drivers’ licenses, diplomas and resumes to name a few. Classified ads recruit translators and people seeking work utilize the classifieds to announce their availability. You won’t get rich as a translator but it affords an opportunity to facilitate commerce and camaraderie amongst the peoples of the world bringing the global community closer.

Kristi learned first hand the value of translators when he moved to Paris. She scoured the classified ads to find translators who could facilitate in the transition.
