We are summarising below some of the more common and attractive career options for language graduates.

The following list is by no means exhaustive and should be considered as an overview of some of the more common career options you could consider. For more information or advice, feel free to contact us at

Graduate placement scheme

Well, first of all you may decide to apply for any graduate placement scheme, or come to think of it any job you like the look of.Graduates who have language skills are popular in the ever expanding international business world as it helps provide a friendly voice and face to the client which, with only non-linguists on board, may not otherwise be possible. A client who is able to communicate in their own language is more likely to do business with a company able to provide this skill. Language graduates should have fairly developed ‘transferrable skills’ (excellent verbal and written communication, team/independent work, organisation/time management, initiative/problem solving etc)that are attractive to any employer.

Bilingual positions

A bilingual position, such as a bilingual PA or admin assistant, for either British or International companies. If you’re flexible about where you live, either in the UK or abroad then this could be one of the better career options for you.

Further study or research


This could be to further your language knowledge, or maybe to break into the teaching profession by undertaking a PGCE specialising in the teaching of French, for example.

I have translated multiple projects with Rosetta now and I cannot emphasise how great the service they provide is; quality, turnaround time and pricing is the best I have found yet. The qualities of translations we receive are of the highest standard and communication from the start of a project to the end is consistent.

For a company looking into translations, I would highly recommend Rosetta as first pick, as the support and service they provide is first class.
