Recently there has been a great interest in various aspects of translators and interpreters’ professional activities. The technological aspect of translators’ work has changed significantly in the last two decades due to the progress in modern technologies. Many recent studies carried out abroad have focused on translators’ and interpreters’ work environment, work regime and occupational health issues, as well as CAT tools and equipment used in work. However, no such research has been done in Latvia.
The aim of this paper is to analyse general information about translators and interpreters and to study various aspects of their professional activities. This paper presents the results of the research which was conducted in 2011-2012.
