Language careers: translator, interpreter, localization/cultural sensitivity specialist, etc.

As America becomes ever more diverse and our economy becomes ever more global, careers as a translator, interpreter, and in making communication culturally sensitive are ever more in-demand. That will likely accelerate further when "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" occurs in the U.S.

On the Feb. 17, 2013 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll talk with two experts on language careers: Renato Beninatto, CMO of Moravia Worldwide and Hans Fenstermacher, CEO of GALA, an international professional association for translators and localization specialists. The latter work to ensure that communication is culturally sensitive.

In the second half of the program, as usual, I'll attempt to help callers solve their career conundrums by doing what I call a Three-Minute Workover.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays from 11 am to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM, San Francisco.
