Maintain Your Professional Language Skills

Learn strategies to continually strengthen your expertise in your working languages.

Professional-level language expertise is what translators and interpreters sell. We cannot neglect to tend to the linguistic expertise that we offer as a service—our skills must be top notch and continually improving. But it is all too easy to prioritize other aspects of your translation or interpreting business if you do not have a firm plan to hone your linguistic skills consistently.

Join this webinar to learn tips and strategies for maintaining and strengthening your working languages. You will take away new ideas, useful links, and references for your linguistic success.

You will learn how to:

  1. Define a framework for maintaining your language skills
  2. Become familiar with the five areas of focus for language maintenance
  3. Set up a plan to assess your progress
