This session sees the return of panelists who discussed career development for medical translators at IJET-25 in Tokyo. However, the theme has changed to survival strategies as the field of medical/pharmaceutical translation industry undergoes major changes such as the advent of AI translation engines, and faces the potential adverse effects of a pandemic-induced downturn. Based on their own experiences in the intervening years, the panelists will cover points such how to marry the needs of the individual translator with those of the industry as a whole, and just how flexible should translators be.
*The panelists will also welcome opinions from participants.
