I am officially a student again (studying for the DPSI) and hopefully preparing for a long career in interpreting and most likely some translation. Are there any resources or discounts I can make the most of now, that I should know about (software, memberships etc)? I have joined IoL as an IoLET Affiliate but notice there are things like Amazon Student Prime where I could get discounts on books etc.

I was wondering about investing in some translation software for example. Worked a little with the free version of Wordfast in the past, but like I said, I'd like to make the most of my current status.

Thank you.

SDL do discounts Oct 16, 2017

If you were looking to do a lot of translation work, SDL do student discounts on Trados, although if you're intending to focus on interpreting and only do a little translation then Trados might be overkill.
