Should Translators and Interpreters specialise?

This seminar addresses several questions: Is it better to be a specialist than a generalist? Which subject areas should we specialise in? Are some subjects better than others? How many specialisms are one too many? Is specialisation the same as expertise? What are the dangers of being too specialised? Come along to find out more!
