I'm tired of teaching in Spain and am now looking for translation work in the UK. However I cannot find any jobs advertised. Can anyone clarify what job title translation positions are advertised under in the UK?

'Translator', as far as I have seen Jan 25, 2009

I have seen them listed mainly under "translator". These jobs are few and far between, however, and seem to be concentrated in central and southern England.

Which sector? Jan 26, 2009

Translation does not appear to be classed as a sector on many UK recruitment websites. Which option should I choose? Is it best to choose the appropriate sector for my specialization?
