As noted by the author of this paper, changes are taking place in perceptions of translating and interpreting. One reason is the change in generations of translators. After World War II, many translators entering the profession in this country were immigrants in search of means of support, but the next generation of translators came predominantly from language majors born in the U.S., many of whom had lived overseas, who more or less fell into the profession as a way of using their language skills without having to devote them to teaching. A new generation of translators is emerging. Although many people are still entering the profession in the traditional manner, more and more of them have had university translator training.
