As such I have never heard of any myths about this field.


But this field is only dominated by
Females and not males
Less jobs or no jobs available

Though these are not myths, but definitely such rumors are heard off recently about the jobs of a translator.


As such this is not true, but definitely the translators are seen across various industry like:
Media
Bureaucrats
Beauty Pageants
Education
Airline / Hotels

Every day people are travelling to a new city or country for jobs related work or for tourism, again language can be the major hurdle or barrier. Here steps in a translator.
Sometimes even scripts or lessons needs to be translated into another language. Again need a translator.

The IAS officer, who mainly acts as an ambassador for one country to another country. Again he travels to various places for major deals and contracts. He has to interact with foreign personnel, who interact in many languages which the person may not be aware of, here steps in the translator.
Another important field we notice an interpreter is in the beauty pageants. Contestant are from all over the world. Translators help them to interact comfortably with other contestants and judges.

The only requirement as a Translator is:
  • Knowing of different languages
  • Knowing minute details about the language
  • Extrovert

  • Analytical ability
  • Fluency in speaking
  • Charismatic personality
  • Ability to work in pressure
  • Being Diplomatic


Wish you good luck...
