I am graduating in May, 2003 with a degree in Spanish. JUST PLAIN SPANISH. So where do I go from here? I would love to do oral interp but I have extremely limited experience. I want to be able to have a job where i can speak Spanish and English all day. Any ideas?

conference interpreting? Feb 27, 2003

Take a look at this site



http://www.emcinterpreting.net/



It\'s a masters course and trains you to interpret for all those high-powered institutions. The only catch is you need another language apart from English and Spanish (or come to think of it you might not be in Europe at all!)

If you are in the UK you could contact the IOL and ITI /look at their websites as a start Mar 5, 2003

--Following on from what I just suggested, I believe a number of UK universities offer MAs in translating and interpreting - although I don\'t know if you are in the UK!

IOL E MAIL ADDRESSES Mar 14, 2003

I checked IOL\'s website and tried to send them an e-mail to two of the addresses mentioned but they both bounced back. Does anyone have an e-mail address that works?

Thank you

ITI email address Mar 14, 2003

I thought I had an email address for IOL but it seems not. However, the other one, ITI, is: info@iti.org.uk

IOL address? Mar 16, 2003

I\'ve sent you an address for one of the staff there (which I know does work).

I wondered if the message bounced because the IOL in it wasn\'t capitalized - something that\'s caught me out before - sorry if that has nothing to do with it

Thank you! Mar 17, 2003

I\'ve never received the address, but I tried to send the message again, capitalizing IOL... I did not get a reply yet, but the message did not bounce back!

Beside Dan's suggestion... Mar 24, 2003

...an other sensible thing to do is to specialise yourself in some kind of niche market that you are interested in. There are zillions of general translators /interpreters, and to do well the best would be to get a specialized training in something you like.



That way, you would end up talking all day long with pros of stuff you like to talk about and rack in a good amount of dough too. (a little idealized, but well....)



If you don\'t like Costa Rica, you can still give Thailand a shot. A nice place to spend some time too.
