Engaging with the profession series - "Meet the Translation and Interpreting Professionals" at Portsmouth University @ Room 2.07 - School of Languages and Applied Linguistics, University of Portsmouth

Although this event is principally aimed at students, it is open to all.
It will be filmed for distance learners.

Three members of the ITI Wessex group who run successful local translation and interpreting businesses will be making themselves available for a panel discussion around these kinds of topics:

How do students bridge the no-experience barrier when seeking to start a translation career?

How is Brexit likely to impact upon translators and interpreters in the UK in the coming 5 years?

What are the benefits from being a member of a professional association?

Is there any advice for getting into freelance translation, particularly in terms of income and sourcing work?

How does one create a CV? What important things should you write down?

What are the first steps to take to establish a translation agency?

Students have been asked to formulate other questions likely to be of interest to them.
