being a translator at the UN

It's not easy to find films about translation - usually the interpreters get most of the attention! ;) - but this film below is quite nice and has good advice about how to go about furthering a career as an in-house translator at the UN in New York. The film was produced by the Monterey Institute of International Studies in California, but lots of what Sabela has to say is relevant to translator training in general.

For those of you who are particularly interested in careers at the UN, go here to find past UN exam papers and details of their entrance exam process.
