Start working in Italy
Thread poster: Claudia Boday
Hello! I live in Italy (Turin) and I really want to start working in the field of film translation. I graduated in June and I have already sent several CVs around, but I got no answer. At the moment I have another job but this is not really what I am planning to do for the rest of my life.. I know you have already discussed similar topics so possibly I would like to have suggestions referring to the place I live.
thanks very much!! : )

Yes, we've already talked about this topic.
You say: "...I have already sent several CVs around..."
Obviously, this ain't enough.
1.- You don't seem to have any experience in this field and that's the first goal, in my opinion. (Begin as a trainee and contact other translators with experience).
2.- Personal contact is vital: we know... Internet, globalization, bla, bla. But I'm firmely convinced that talking to people would make it easier for you to get something from them.
Good luck, and please excuse my poor English writing.

I wrote my final thesis on dubbing and subtitling, and I really got in the subject. I have also translated subtitles from Hungarian to Italian, as a hobby.

I also got in touch with some Italian dubbing director but they are in Rome, and I'm in Turin, so it's not so easy...
I am trying to do my best : )
Thanks again for your suggestions!
