INTRODUCING IGNITE

  • Do you want to take your passion for languages to the next level?
  • Does a career in the translation industry peak your interest?
  • How aware are you about the scope of this field?
  • Are you ready to take the leap or do you find yourself lagging behind in some areas?

No doubt, getting a degree in the subject of your choice would not only build you up in numerous ways, but also polish your skills and create ample scope for you to provide expertise in the chosen field, and eventually make a career out of it. Having said that, there still would be a certain amount of disparity between book knowledge and how things really function in the real world.

The field of languages brings along with it, a diverse range of challenges, more so because, you can never really master a language fully, at any given point in time; so that’s one area where you must keep learning and improving, to be better each day. Apart from this inevitable, perhaps inescapable outcome; due to the fast pace at which this industry is growing, you’d be expected to contribute like a skilled professional from the time you graduate. The seemingly smaller, less complex things will play an important role in the way you stand out from the crowd. So, what’s the next step?
