From CNBC: As the Earth feels ever smaller, demand for translators and interpreters skyrockets

Excerpt from the article:

  • The number of people employed in the translation and interpretation industry has doubled in the past seven years.
  • Rather than replacing them, technology has helped translators and interpreters improve their performance.
  • Working at the United Nations is one of the most coveted roles for a translator or interpreter.

Early stage translators at the U.N. can make around $60,000 a year to start but can move into the six-figure range depending on the role. Opportunities for advancement are far-reaching, and the payoff at the organization comes with the chance to be part of something greater than just a career.
