Is Deaf Umbrella for you?

Being a language service professional is a rewarding job – one that can change lives – it’s always interesting and varied. But it’s a challenging and demanding job; you need to understand who you are too.

 

You may be working in areas or with topics with which you have little first-hand knowledge. You will need strong personal qualities; good organisational skills, sensitivity and tact, flexibility and sound judgment.

 

Your abilities will of course grow with experience, training and further education. We are forever learning, assessing, thinking of how our actions affect others and developing our language skills. This allows us to take a source message and translate this into the target message giving content, intent, aims and outcomes of the message. We love what we do, communication is our passion.
