To become a member of MTM LinguaSoft’s network of translators, a linguist must have at least five years of relevant experience and good references from other clients. Beyond this, we look for translators who are professionals with good communication and research skills, excellent time management skills, attention to detail, and competency with computer aided translation tools. For a specific job, we go further and match the translator’s skills and knowledge with the subject matter of the materials. For specialized fields, like medicine, engineering, and IT, translators must be trained in the terminology through graduate training, programs in translation that offer certifications in particular subject areas, or through experience working in the field itself. We also look for translators native to the region where the translation will be used (e.g., Chinese for Taiwan, French for Canada, or Spanish for Mexico). More information »
