How To: Travel and Translate

Working and traveling don’t really go together, do they? Well, they do if you’re a
translator or interpreter.

What if communication is difficult when traveling? Sometimes it’s impossible to find an internet connection. What can a translator do then? Work offline, of course. The best way to ensure success is to plan a day where internet will be available, and use that as an opportunity to send off the completed translated document.

What does a translator need while traveling?

A translator needs a laptop, or whatever device used to translate documents. Bring along a good attitude, and stay stress-free. The work is t when working at home, but sometimes stress crops up because of the new environment.

Remember to keep calm and enjoy the trip while it lasts. You are, after all, in a foreign country, so why not enjoy your time there rather than stress out?

What about an interpreter?

An interpreter has the advantage of being able to travel laptop-free. Of course, the translator is probably working with a client on whatever trip that has been chosen. This gives the opportunity to build more clientele in the given country, and gain a better relationship with the current client.

All it takes is the right attitude and a laptop.
