Is there a lot of room in a translation position for advancement or promotion?
Off the top of my hand, I can think of two traditional ways that a translation professional working in house can advance. First, they can get bigger, more involved, more extensive, and more interesting projects. Secondly, and this is where the notion of career advancement is involved, they can become a team project leader. Should that be of interest and if they do a good job, the next logical step would be to become a project manager, and after that, to move into middle and then upper management. Of course, another direction would also be client acquisition, or, to use another term for it, sales.
