I am a very young (21) student studing translation at university, having also some experiences as interpret and would like to work in this domain. Very decided but can't really see my level and value in the world of translators. Would be very very happy for any help or any work. Thank you in advance. Nice day for all of you.

hi ya Nov 5, 2005

Send your CV to some translation and interpreting agencies and have a look at the site www.anpe.fr as they sometimes post jobs for translators and interpreters.
Keep on studying!

how not to rush when you are 21? :) Nov 5, 2005

my problem is that the only way to study is to have as much experiences as you can...but with the work comes the reponsibility...which frightens me a bit away...or would like to work with experienced translators. Can anyone suggest good tutors, methods or schools?

There are certainly other universities and schools which prepare for a translators certificate, but here is one:

http://www.univ-paris3.fr/esit/fil_trad.html#trad_cursus

"Régime Spécial :

L'ESIT organise sur deux semestres une formation spécifique pour les étudiants dont la langue A ne figure pas parmi les langues de travail de l'école (ex : coréen, japonais, polonais, hongrois...) mais qui possèdent le français en langue B.
Conditions :
- Etre titulaire d'un diplôme de français (langue et littérature, FLE, linguistique...) équivalent à 8 semestres d'études universitaires.
- La présence d'au moins 4 candidats de même langue A aux examens, et d'au moins trois candidats de même langue A à l'inscription est exigée. "

This means lots of work, but I think it is valid, as Hungarian is certainly one of the languages that will be highly in demand in the future.
