Hi everybody, I am translation student. I would like to know your opinion about this topic. The survey is short, it just has 5 questions.

1. How do the specialized translators face the competitive market?

2. Which are the advantages and disadvantages of being specialized translators?

3. Nowadays, who does control the translation market? the general translators, the specialized general translators or the specialized translators. why?

4. If a novice translator decides to be general translator, will he get the same translator competence of a specialized translator? if your answer is not, do you think the novice translators should avoid this kind of translation (general translation)? why?

5. What will the future be of the specialized translation?
