In the second episode of Inside Specialization, host Veronika Demichelis interviews ATA Past President Corinne McKay and current ATA Director Meghan Konkol about translating in the international development market. You'll learn that it's not all the pro bono work you might have thought it was—in fact, just the opposite.

You'll also hear about the types of translation work you can expect, the interesting cultural challenges, the somewhat lower barriers to entering the sector, and the many subspecialties within the field that let you find your passion.

Bonus! Both Meghan and Corinne have tips for beginners and experienced translators who want to get into international development translation.
