Translation and Interpretation: Economic Outlook

Thanks to our colleague Céline Graciet over at Naked Translations for twittering about this very positive economic outlook for translators and interpreters in the U.S. It's a report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (United States Department of Labor). The great news in a nutshell: employment for translators and interpreters is projected to increase by 24% in the 2006 - 2016 decade. We like hearing something positive admid all the terrible economic news, and this is certainly something to cheer about.

Read the entire detailed report (most interesting sections: job outlook and projection data) here.
