Leacock Building Room 232, 855 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 2T7, CA


 

Join us and our panel of expert practitioners, managers, strategists and educators as we take a closer look at a rapidly growing and changing language industry. Hear first-hand accounts about the career development decisions made by enterprising language professionals in response to marketplace challenges and opportunities. Learn more about how technology is shaping, and will continue to shape, the day-to-day realities of translators and how the profession is poised to evolve in the coming years. Discover the strategies and skill sets that can make a real difference in getting ahead in the increasingly overlapping areas of the language industry. And find out how all this will impact your career trajectory as an aspiring or working language professional.

This discussion will delve into some of the issues that informed and inspired the recent revamp of McGill’s Certificates in Translation. Offered in three language pairs (French to English, English to French, English to Spanish) and taught by active industry practitioners, these revised programs are designed to help tomorrow’s language professionals kickstart their careers today.

This is the second in a series of conversations we will be leading throughout the year to reflect on the future of translation within the broader language industry.
