Is japanese language a lucrative career option and are there opportunities for study and work in abroad?
Hello student,Thanks for posting your query on meracareerguide. Your interest in making a career in foreign language is appreciable.With India becoming a major player in the global market and a lot of multinational companies coming to India, professionals who can overcome the language barrier are seen as an asset in any company. Now-a-days foreign language experts are seed to be in translation related services in different settings. For instance you can work in varied sectors like tourism, embassies and diplomatic services, international organisations, etc. You can also work as a trainer if you are certified for it or have the right qualifications.In addition, newer areas like content writing (which ca be pursued online as well from a office based setting), technical translation or decoding etc. are also coming up in a major way.An ideal qualification for any of these jobs would be a graduation in the respective language. However, even diplomas are seen to be sufficient in some.Hope this clarifies your doubt.Regards and good luck!Nandini
