Do you know of the viability of such a combination ?

What would you suppose of the viability of such an option ?

Do you know anyone working as an interpreter with Persian language ? Or have you heard such thing ? Or do you have friends who have friends who work with Persian ?

Are there any schools teaching Persian ? In particular ESIT and/or ISIT ?

I've always dreamed of become interpreter, but for now I'm only 22, I'll do other things in my life before. And I fell in love with Iran and the Persian language and am currently learning it while living in Iran, so being able to be an interpreter with Persian would be ...

I was wondering if there were some new stuff or updates on the persian topic ...

Les réponses en français sont aussi les bienvennues.

Thank you !!!

ISIT teaches and has taught Farsi (Persian) over the years. So there are teachers and therefore interpreters with Farsi. Outside Iran it is of course a small market. And I would guess that much of the work is whispered interpreting, liaison or consecutive rather than in a booth. There was an American woman in my FR into EN classes a few years back at ISIT and she also had Farsi in her combination and graduated with that in her combination. She got work as an interpreter for a major international aid organisation working with refugees in Iran/Afghanistan.

Farsi is also a market that requires interpreters work in both directions, so if you are a native French or English speaker then you will need a Persian B, which is no mean feat.

If you're in Iran maybe you could contact the interpreters' association there for more info
