Specializing as a legal interpreter – pros and cons, tips and tricks


Sue will talk about why specializing in legal interpreting will enhance both your status and your earnings, the pros and cons of being specialized as well as how to become an expert in this field. If you want to become a “go to” expert ongoing legal training is essential because the law is constantly evolving and interpreters who are not up to date will be taking huge risks with their clients’ work. This is not an area for those who “dabble”!Sue will discuss which areas of law are in demand and whether or not it is possible to combine this sort of work with different specialisms or even altogether different work.
