Career in Translation

Where can future translators work?

Translation graduates can work in house with national and international companies, sworn translators, language service providers, publishing houses, local and international NGOs and academic institutions, among many more. They can also open and manage their own translation company.

As freelance translators, the market is diverse. Freelancers can work either for senior translators, translation houses, or companies that might require outsourcing the translation of their documents. When a project is too demanding, freelancers can also be project managers and delegate the work to other translators and ensure the completion of the work.

Despite the economic crisis, translators are in great demand since there is no shortage of material needing translation.

What posts can translation graduates apply for?

Translators can choose to work as senior translators, reviewers, editors, proofreaders, copywriters, language instructors, terminologists, researchers, and/or interpreters. They can also work as content creators in Arabic and English.
