Italian to English
Mar 7, 2003

I\'m just starting out and based on my background would like to try Italian to English IT related translations. Is there much of a market for this language pair in IT? I see lots of opportunities out of English but not so many into English. Would it be worth learning another specialism perhaps? Any advice welcome!

Hi New member,

IT (computers, not Italian) is a very bad market at the moment, and not just for translators. Not only are cheap countries moving in, also many non-IT translators take whatever they can get in these though times.

So if you\'re trying to live of IT only translations - I suggest you find others means of making money...

As for learning a new specialism - I don\'t really believe you can \"learn\" specialisms, you either spend 4 or so years in University or on the job to learn a specialism (but other people have different opions about that)
