Summary:Translation of environmental texts can provide a stable source of income as well as useful and interesting information about the world we live in. Areas of environmental translation. Your potential customers. Equipping yourself for environmental translation. Terminology issues.
Description
Conservation of nature is a critically important issue for the modern society and there are many environmental organizations focusing on its different aspects and areas. Nature conservation includes a broad range of various issues from air pollution and global warming to the protection of rare animal and plant species. Often the solution of various environmental problems requires the joint efforts of scientists, politicians, managers, governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations and individuals not in just one country but in several countries.

Sometimes, even global efforts are required to investigate and find ways for fixing various problems. This often operates through joint multi-language projects and here we, translators come to help. For us, translators, translation for environmental organizations can be a stable source of income, but also an opportunity to contribute to a very important work as well as a source of interesting and useful information regarding the protection of the environment we live in.

We will discuss:

  • Areas of environmental translation
  • Equipping yourself for environmental translation
  • Dealing with new environmental terminology
  • Potential customers and how to maintain good continuous relationships with them

Hi there,

I have already enrolled for the course and paid the fee. I've only now realised that for me it'll take place at 5 am, and it's highly likely I'll miss the live session.

My question is, by paying the fee I'll have access to the handouts and video recording, right? Or will I have to pay to get those afterwards? (the description does say that by enrolling you get access to the video and handouts but the comment above confused me).

Thank you a lot,

Hello unfortunately I missed the webinar after all. It says here in the comments that you have access to the recording if you purchased it. Can somebody please tell me how to find it, as it's not to be found in my videos.

Many thanks,
