Top 4 Translator Resume Tips

Translator Resume

Within this post I would like to provide a few tips on how to make your resume better. First of all, there isn't a perfect resume. Some translators have not yet finished college but make over $100 grand a year working as a freelance translator or in a translation company. Every line on your resume should build the case of how much experience you have working in the translation industry and how valuable you will be for the company once they hire you. This is your chance to show-off and move on to the next step; the interview!!!

Here are my Top 4 Translator Resume Tips:
  1. Write a very short paragraph on the top of you resume explaining why you would fit in the company that you are applying to.
  2. Add a summary of your qualifications, how many years of experience you have in the industry, familiarity with computers, add extra curriculum courses you have taken, and write 1-3 bullet points about your interpersonal skills and ability to work in a team.
  3. Add your professional experience, this is your chance to show the firm how knowledgeable you are in the field. Make a list of places that you have worked as a translator before, add dates and provide all the languages that you are specialized in translation.
  4. On the bottom of your resume, provide education and professional training, such as names of schools that you have attended, and all of the translation certifications that you have earned.

Hope this helps.
