Hi everyone.

I apologise in advance if what I'm asking may be found elsewhere on I have not come across it in that case and would very much welcome your thoughts/re-directioning.

I was wondering whether there are any more or less "official" numbers/statistics on fields of specialisation for which there is a higher demand in the market. For example, I've been thinking for a while that Environmental issues would be on an absolute rise, bur have not seen it happening. I might be missing it or might as well have been mistaken, that is why I'm asking.

If you don't know of such numbers, just like myself, your opinions are most welcome as well.

Thank you very much in advance.

Interesting question... Sep 8, 2008

I would like to develop my skills in human resources translations but I am wondering if there are many opportunies in my language combinaison.

We all know that legal, medical, pharmaceutic and technical fields are very popular but what about the other fields?

Where can we get answers?
