Working as a translator requires being up to date with respect to all new developments and being in contact with other professionals to exchange views and experiences. For this reason, translation journals are one of the best resources for translation professionals and agencies.
The main benefit of this type of publication is their frequency and periodic content update. So today we’ll take a look at some of the best translation journals by language of origin.
