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.
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.

Very interesting and very encouragingNov 22, 2014

Although it could be said that Anneta began with an advantage in having worked for a long period for environmental organisations before becoming a freelance translator she is very clear about the opportunities that existe and the work that is available. It is up to each of us to 'get out there' and create the client base but she is honest about the fact that it won't happen tomorrow. Still lots of tips about how to go about it. Thanks Anneta.

Good that it is possible to download the PPT presentation, however I can't find the video online (although I updated my Adobe Flash Payer etc.). Is the video still available?!
