Overview

Translators convert information from one language to another. They translate the written word. (Those who translate the spoken word are known as interpreters.) Translators who are self-employed frequently have variable schedules.

Although translators typically need a bachelor’s degree, the most important requirement is that they be fluent in English and at least one other language. Many complete job-specific training programs.
