Joan

Gaelic translator

'There's a big world opening up for you in translation.'

Translation is a second career for Joan.

After she left university she worked with Gaelic bodies like Comunn na Gàidhlig and Stòrlann Nàiseanta Na Gàidhlig to promote the language.

Then when she was thinking about returning for work when her children were older, she became a self-employed translator.

And she urges others to consider it as a career because there are growing opportunities in this type of work.
