ARE YOU BILINGUAL?

Have you ever considered a career as an interpreter?

Professional Interpreting: A Smart Career Choice

“Employment of interpreters and translators is projected to grow 46 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations.” – US Department of Labor

Thousands of bilinguals like yourself are currently working as interpreters around the country, earning good money by putting their language skills to work in courts, law offices, hospitals, schools, government positions, conferences, international business settings and more. The median salary of a language interpreter in 2012 was $45,430 (US Dept. of Labor), and job openings in this field will continue to expand as global trade and a number of foreign language speakers in our country continue to increase.

Now is the time to get in on this exciting opportunity for a rewarding career!

Agustín de la Mora, a national leader in the interpretation industry, will be presenting a 1-day workshop on the basics of becoming a professional language interpreter on Saturday August 19th, in Orlando Florida. Join us to find out if a career as an interpreter may be right for you.

This may be a great career option for you if:

- You are fluent in English and at least one other language.

- You would like to be your own boss, make your own schedule and set your own fees.

- You are passionate about helping people by facilitating communication.

- You have a legal, medical or business background (these areas have the highest demand).

- You are interested in working from home as a telephonic/video interpreter.

- You are looking for a source of additional income or maybe even a whole new career!

Topics will include:

- What is language interpretation?

- What is the difference between an interpreter and a translator?
