Should You Become a Translator?

Are you fluent in one or more foreign language? If the answer is yes, then that’s fantastic! Let me tell you about the benefits of using your Multilingual/Bilingual skills in a Translation role. Who loves flexible working hours? With translation jobs, a translator will be given a deadline by their client to complete a piece of work.  You can do this in the comfort of your own home or even in the funky coffee shop down the road from you. There are no set hours. Just make sure you get the work done within the time you are given. You need to be organised and smart with your time keeping, allowing time for edits to be made at the client’s request and to ensure all deadlines are met. There are also opportunities to become a full-time, in house translator for larger companies. The salary can range from £20,000 to £30,000 depending on the language and the size/nature of the company.   More money? Yes please. Freelance translators are usually paid around £60 to £120 or more per 1000 words. According to nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk, here are the average salaries for: Starter Translator: £18, 000 Experienced Translator: £30,000 Highly Experienced: £40,000 Languages such as Arabic, Chinese, Korean & German are extremely important for businesses, therefore translators that are fluent in these languages are likely to receive excellent payment for their services. Multilingual/Bilingual employees are likely to receive 5% to 10% more than their non-multilingual counterpart.   You are SO in demand.  Companies are expanding quickly and are finding great opportunities to grow in foreign markets and due to Brexit, even more opportunities will arise for language speaking candidates, as Britain plans to target new markets outside of the European Union. According to research carried out by Professor James Foreman-peck for the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the assumption that everyone speaks English is costing the UK economy around £48bn a year, 3.5% of the GDP.   What will the job entail? If you like variety, this is definitely the job for you! You might be working on contracts between partners or investors, legal documents, website page translations & online content, marketing material, commercial material and more, again, depending on the nature of the business you are working for. Interpreters and translators play an enormous role in company expansion in different locations. What do you need? Employers usually require candidates to have a Bachelor’s Degree. Candidates must be fluent in English and another language, and formal training in translating may be required depending on the role/nature of the company.   So, if you are unsure about what to do with your Multilingual or Bilingual skills, why not search for a language speaking job as a translator? Euro London is one of the biggest language recruitment agencies in Europe with offices in London, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Why Do Recruiters Ask for Salary Expectations?

  •  Posted on Jun 29, 2017  by  | No Comments
This is my favourite question during an interview! Recruiters ask for your salary expectations because of several reasons: 1. To understand if a company can afford you 2. To make sure we offer you the salary which is interests you 3. To understand the salary range in the industry better Now, let's see why these topics are important.
  •  If your salary expectations are far above the budget, it will not make sense to further discuss the role.
  • If your current salary is, say, £70k then would you consider roles for £65k or less? This well depends on several factors, incl. your overall satisfaction at job and the market average.
  • Some companies clearly over or underpay their employees. Having a real picture of what the salary ranges are, we could adjust the remuneration policies and make sure that good candidates are not leaving because of 10% salary-increase.
Many candidates are afraid of revealing their current salary, assuming they would get paid less. Usually this is not the case as underpaid employees leave the company and thus the whole hiring process doesn’t make sense for the employer. However, If you want to be fairly paid and not sure if your current salary is in line with the market, do your homework. Written by Evgeniya Akulova - Euro London, German office
