Communication & Languages

By 2024, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 29 percent employment growth for interpreters and translators. The field is on track to add 17,500 new positions during that period. As diversity in the U.S. increases and globalization continues at a breakneck pace, so will the demand for spoken-language interpreters. Job prospects are especially bright for those fluent in Chinese, German, Russian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Sign-language interpreters should also expect an employment boom, thanks to the popularity of video relay, a Skype-like service that enables people who are deaf to communicate with interpreters online. Greater interaction and trade among people throughout the globe and continued demand for military interpreters and translators should also pave the way for increased employment in this field for years to come.
