I’m a freelance translator with quite a bit of experience under my belt, and I also work as a court interpreter. I’ve always wondered about conference interpreting, but I’m wondering if it’s the right choice for me. I’m also fascinated with law and am actually in the process of getting my law degree, and I’m having a difficult time choosing between going on to get a conference interpreting MA afterwards or continue on with an LLM (law). It seems a lot of CI courses are prohibitively expensive and I want to make absolutely sure before committing. I know it’s not a decision to take lightly!
I’m kind of at that point where my life could go in two directions and I don’t know which to choose–do I want to continue with law and possibly work with policy somehow, or do I want to continue using languages which I also love?
