The news from Translation Center alumni is good, as many are quite successful. Three recent students–Adam LaMotagne, Elena Langdon, and Maura Talmadge–have all found very nice jobs.
Adam is currently a project manager at Lionbridge in their company headquarters in Waltham., MA. He graduated here in 2004 and served as a project manager here for several years at the Translation Center before moving on.
After studying here in 2007-08, Maura has accepted a job as a senior project manager at Language Connections in Boston, where she works in the areas of finance, oil, pharmaceuticals, advertising, and business.
Elena, who graduated in 2006, first worked as a lecturer in Interpreting Studies here at UMass before recently taking a job as head of interpreting services at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield.
Indeed, the news from our graduates is terrific: Paulina Alenkina (BA, 2005) works for Forex Capital Markets in NYC, using her Russian and French langauge skills; Daniela Fargione (PhD, 2004) is a professor of American Literature and Translation at the University of Torino in Italy; Revan Hedo (MA 2007) works as a cultural advisor for Lexicon, Inc. in California; Corinne Oster (PhD, 2004) teaches Translation and American Studies at the University of Toulouse at Mirail; and after a stint at project manager for SDLX in London, Lynn Prince (PhD 2000) is back in the USA where she is now Project Manager Director at CTS Language Link in Vancouver, Washington.
I am very pleased with our community of graduates that is growing in the translation industry. Many of these entry level jobs are very well paying indeed, showing that there is a demand for high quality translators and interpreters in the field.
