What does a Language Analyst do?
Linguists perform a range of language interpretation and analysis duties, often translating information between two or more languages. They translate and interpret spoken and written communications, which may be complex or technical in content. They commonly work in military or educational settings, and may be translating information that is of a sensitive or confidential nature. They may also review transcriptions or other language-related records to verify their accuracy.
Linguists typically have at least a bachelor’s degree, although an equivalent level of relevant professional experience may be acceptable. They frequently have worked as a translator, interpreter, or in a similar role. They generally must be fluent in at least one other language in addition to their native language. Some roles may require security clearances and background checks.
