Susan Schweigert, 2011

Susan Schweigert photoCurrent city: Chicago, IL

Concentration: Spanish to English Translation

Now I’m: a freelance translator and interpreter in the legal field

I came to Translation & Interpreting Studies because:
I always loved working with languages. While working with an international non-profit, translation and interpreting were a big part of my job. I enjoyed it immensely and decided to pursue it as a career.

What career advice do you have for current or potential TIS students?
Continuing education is a must. Stay involved with colleagues and professional organizations, and always be ready to learn something new.
