Transition to the Translation Market as a Challenge for Translators-to-Be
Early adulthood is a time of very dynamic developmental changes. The transition to labour market is one of the key developmental tasks at this time, whose course often has an impact on the entire professional life of an individual. In the context of academic education, it is important to highlight the first transition of students from education to labour. This perspective imposes specific targets and challenges on academic education. Therefore, in this article, the author has presented the results of research on some aspects of the pre-transition situation of the students of translation specialization of the Applied Linguistics department at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University. The research results are discussed within the context of the nature of the translation profession.
