Rank #14: E32: Specialization, what's the big deal?

Podcast cover
Read more

There is something to be said about specializing, whether you are a translator or interpreter. Why? Well, for one, you frequently earn more money by working in a niche market. And two, you may well end up with a steady clientele who see you as their "go to expert" without ever looking for anyone else.  An important piece of the specialization puzzle is how you get there. Where do you start? In Episode 32 of The ATA Podcast, Karen Tkaczyk and Amanda Dahlberg tell host Matt Baird the different paths they took to their specialties.
