Can anybody tell me what a standard starting salary in a Swiss translation company as a junior translator would be?

probably not a lot... Apr 2, 2007

Hi M.!

(sound like a James Bond movie already)

Looking at this one http://www.wipo.int/edocs/jobdocs/en/2007/wipo_vacancy_p1848.html

quite a lot, so I guess it really depends on where you go and what languages you speak... and your experience and stuff like that

But in general I think you need to check adds for "office assistant" and "Tri-ligual secretary" rather then the professionals we are
- sad... but usually true...

hey ... wait... there seems to be some hope yet:
."I have a friend in Switzerland who is a translator and she got about 30%+ more in CH than in UK" from http://www.englishforum.ch/employment/4848-salary-must-fair.html

who knows, maybe Switzerland is the place to be!

On the other had, if you happen to be a woman:
"Women in Switzerland earn between a quarter and a third less than men, with the salary gap widening among older workers, according to a new report."

from http://www.swissinfo.org/eng/swissinfo.html?siteSect=161&sid=4395208

...
In short - don't know really
