Interpreters and Translators Among Most In-Demand & High-Paying Jobs of 2014 –via Latin Post

interpreters-and-translators

With a growing Latino and increasingly diversified population in the United States, there is a demand for interpreters and translators in 2014, among other occupations that make up the Top 12 high-wage, in-demand, skilled positions this year.

While high-paying jobs that offer financial and career security are enticing, there is another perk that comes along with being an interpreter and a translator — personal gratification for helping students and families in need of support and clarification. (The Latin Post takes a closer look at this trend further into the story.)

CareerBuilder teamed up with Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) to identify the occupations that grew by at least seven percent from 2010 to 2013, are projected to grow in 2014, and pay at least $22 per hour. EMSI data is collected from more than 90 federal and state sources, such as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau and state labor departments, according to Business Insider.

“There are thousands of language professionals. but only the best can make it to the top…..

Interpreters working at the UN are expected to recognize, understand and – in a split second – have a word in another language for any one of a myriad of issues. The range of interpretation subjects is broad, including politics, legal affairs, economic and social issues, human rights, finance and administration. Providing interpretation at meetings is the most visible aspect of their duties; to be able to provide an equivalent of most anything a delegate may say in two or more languages, interpreters spend much of their time maintaining and improving their language skills and awareness of new developments in current affairs.

Interpreters provide simultaneous interpretation from and into the six official languages for the meetings of the General Assembly, the Security Council and the Economic and Social Council and all their subsidiary bodies. A team for a six-language meeting requires 14 interpreters: three per booth for Arabic and Chinese (because they interpret from and into those languages), and two apiece for English, French, Russian and Spanish.

Use your native language skills to help complete the mission in the National Guard #interpreter

Interpreter/Translators and Linguists

In the Guard, accurate communication is essential to every mission’s success. So it’s important that some members of the Guard are able to read and understand the many languages of the world. Interpreter/Translators (MOS 09L) gain information directly from foreign citizens and other sources. As specialists in a particular language and culture, their job differs from Cryptologic Linguists (MOS 35P), who primarily translate foreign-language material from broadcasts and written materials such as newspapers and magazines, scanning for key words and indicators.
