Greetings to all student translators and interpreters, and welcome to the student blog of the Carolina Association of Translators and Interpreters!
This blog is intended for students of translation and interpretation, particularly (but not necessarily limited to) those who are members of CATI. We want to encourage as much student participation in the blog, and in the Association as a whole, as possible, and as such we welcome any comments or ideas that you may have relating to the fields of translation and/or interpretation. For example, would you like to see profiles of different T/I programs? Interviews with current professors and/or students? Reminders of upcoming CATI- or ATA-sponsored events? What would you like to see from this blog? Let us know!
We also want to get to know you and help you form connections to other students and professionals in the field, so please feel free to leave a comment and tell us about yourself. Where do you go to school? What are you studying? What’s your specialization? Which classes have you found particularly useful, and which have you found not very helpful or interesting? Do you have any advice for other students?
We hope that with the help of this blog, T/I students will have more opportunities for networking and growth in their academic and professional careers. We’re looking forward to working with you!
