Who do translation professionals interact with most in their position at a firm? (For example, customers, media, employees, etc.)
This depends entirely on what their job description is and where in the industry they work. So, for example, if you’re a consultant working for agencies, you’ll never interact with an end-customer. If you’re in the publicity department of a large corporation, and you’re translating press releases for dissemination in other countries or for media in other languages, you might well interact with the media. If you’re a bilingual supervisor who oversees workers who need to hear one language and not another, you’ll deal with employees. If you’re a banker or broker who handles customer interactions, you’ll deal with customers. And so forth. Honestly, the list is endless.
