Foreign Languages Career Scope
"Learning a new language ensures trouble-free travelling and an enriching experience. It not only helps appreciate a new culture but also opens a door for better employment opportunities" says Giola Rodrigues. Here are jobs options in foreign languages.
Many companies require translators to help understand their communication with their counterparts. Jobs can be regular, full time or part-time. There are also many translation agencies which employ personnel having good knowledge of a foreign language. A person can work free-lance after gaining a few years' experience.
With the advent of new technology like teleconferencing and video-conferencing, it is now possible to hold conferences and meetings between personnel from India and their counterparts in other countries without having to actually travel between the two countries. Almost always, such meetings require a person with the knowledge of not just the language but also of the manners and etiquette.
