Nowadays, many students will choose to join the translation industry, but in fact, some people have misunderstandings about the translation industry. So the following editor of Beijing translation company will explain the misunderstanding of English translation.
1、 English translation must have corresponding qualification certificate
There are many translation companies in China. In addition to some large-scale translation companies, other small translation companies generally have no special requirements for qualification certificates, and they value the experience and ability of translators.
2、 English translation must be English major
This is a misunderstanding of many people. English translation needs to master the language of English, but translation in different fields is more professional, so students of other majors can also engage in translation on the basis of proficient English skills.
3、 English translation must be a master's degree or even a doctor's degree
As mentioned before, translation not only focuses on knowledge, but also requires strong ability and experience. Compared with the lack of experience, translation companies may prefer college students with rich experience and higher ability.
4、 English translation in big cities is higher than that in small cities
We all know that translation is charged by word, and the translation quality should also be considered. The same manuscript may be charged by different people. No matter in big cities or small cities, only high-quality translation quality can make a good translation price, and there is no big regional difference. Maybe there are more jobs in big cities.
5、 The translation market is saturated
There are tens of thousands of translation companies in China, and there are not a few translators, so many people think that China's translation market has been saturated. However, this is not the case. The trend of international economic globalization is increasing. Therefore, only when the economy is developing, the demand for translation will not decrease.
