or organizations are offering the course, teaching the language is least preferred
by many. A few online websites are also offering the language courses and recruit
the experts as instructors or content developers of the language.
Translation: This is one of the most chosen areas by the aspirants as a career option.
There are several opportunities for Czech to English or Hindi translations and vice-versa.
Diploma or Advanced Diploma is the required qualification. Many servicing companies
recruit the language experts for translating books, magazines or newspapers. Apart
from them marriage certificates, academic transcripts, immigration and naturalization
papers, etc. are also getting translated. Several opportunities are also found in
online servicing companies. These jobs can also be chosen as part time.
Customer Services: Few BPO companies are offering opportunities for the Czech language
experts. These servicing companies offer voice based or non voice based job roles
to these experts.
The pay range starts from Rs. 5000/- per month. The highest qualification, experience
and expertise bring better opportunities and higher pay.
The typical language offers hands-on opportunities to the enthusiasts and is getting
more popular day by day.
