A young translator on her path to success
Dreaming big and working hard
What I have learned from my studies is that speaking multiple languages doesn't make you a good translator any more than seeing multiple colors makes you a good painter. You need to be determined and persistent in your work, versatile and emphatic with your clients; you need to master the know-how and be passionate about it, but most of all you need to gird up your loins and be brave and aware of the fact that only those who aim for the best will eventually succeed. And this is exactly my goal: I love my job and I always do my best for your success and mine.
I know that for a good translator the client is always at the core. There is nothing more important for me than ensuring that the service I provide is the best that it can be. Your success is my success and my priority. The only way to achieve it is through a clear and effective communication that will empower and allow you to enter the market with dignity, helping you beat the strenuous competition.
I know that for a good translator constant training and improvement of professional qualifications is an ongoing effort that should permeate any translator's routine in order to be able to provide client-tailored services. Courses, workshops and specializations must be chosen based on interests and passions. In order to get the most out of them, an innate curiosity and a critical mind are certainly required.
I know that for a good translator another key element is a strong network of partners and colleagues always willing to help. Knowing there will always be someone to turn to for advice or guidance can really make the difference for a young translator as myself on my path towards a bright career.
But what I know for sure is that it's with the clients that a good translator should always build a strong network of trust and cooperation, proving every day to be trustworthy and accurate, working hard together in mutual respect for a brighter future.
Inspired by these principles I began working as a translator and freelancer in the language industry, hoping to see my dreams come true.
