The “making of” a translator – a functional approach to translator training

Abstract The “making of” a translator is not a straightforward task. It requires the teacher to be very thorough and extra aware of current changes in the translation market. Actual first-hand experience or market research can be of paramount importance in this regard. It is the teacher who should spot the first signs of such changes in translation trends and requirements set by outsources before new translators. They should try to answer these issues by adopting new training techniques and altering their courses so that their graduates can enter the market feeling that they do not fall behind the rest of the translation community in terms of practical and theoretical background, but even go ahead of them in certain areas.
