Translation jobs involve converting written documents - such as research reports or government papers – from one language into another. Such roles are a great way for multilingual people to make the most of their skills, and this can be satisfying and well-paid work.Often degree level education is expected by employers with translation jobs to fill. Translation agencies specialise in this kind of work, but translators are also needed in-house at large multi-national organisations. Translators can go freelance once they have built up good experience and industry contacts. Big employers in the translation job market include the European Union, NATO, government departments, banks and educational institutions, as well as the media sector.
