Polish Sworn Translators’ Attitudes Towards the Job they Perform – Results Obtained from a Job Satisfaction Survey


The main aim of this paper is to present the results of a job satisfaction survey conducted on a group of Polish sworn translators (translating from English into Polish and from Polish into English). The first part of this paper discusses the state of the art of sociology of translation as well as providing a definition of job satisfaction. Then, the author of the paper moves on to the presentation of the research procedure: the methodology, the limitations of the study, the results and a discussion about the findings. This study presents evidence suggesting that Polish sworn translators experience a high level of job satisfaction. Nevertheless, due to research limitations, further studies on this topic are recommended before the issue of job satisfaction among sworn translators is more clearly understood.
