  1. Helps with understanding of Romance languages across the board.

2. Allows you to read historical documents from centuries ago. Not all of them have been translated into English or any contemporary language--there is a wealth of information which exists only in Latin.

3. Useful for understanding legal, philosophical, and scientific terminology.

4. It's fun.

It does sound like fun, but it's too impractical. It's every Latin student's wish to be fluent in the language and to maintain Ciceronian dialogues within it, but it's difficult in that the language is not modern. This leads to gaps in vocabulary, where we cannot discuss things such as computers and television shows unless we agree on the words to be used beforehand.

Besides, one thing that must be mentioned: the Latin that is studied in schools is hardly reflective of the Latin spoken by the average Roman. The "Classical" variety that we all know was a highly polished form that only the educated Romans spoke. Your average Roman would have spoken Vulgar Latin, which is of a drastically different character, being much simpler. A good friend once made the analogy that studying Latin by reading Caesar, Catullus, and Ovid is like studying English by reading Shakespeare.

Anime and Manga are useful for study because they're for children, but they're also fucking boring, I get most of my time with the language from music or talking to guys on the internet about arcade games. I'd love to try my hand at reading some actual good literature in the language, but aside from Haruki Murakami and that nazi who stabbed the guy who even knows any Japanese authors.

Anybody got anything to reccomend? I could post this on /lit/ but whatever.

I did an introductory translation course but I never followed it up because it became very clear that I'd spend the next 10 years of my life competing with people happy to be paid 1 euro an hour on oDesk, and after that probably just be replaced with computers.

Am I wrong? It is very much the area where my skills lie, I'm good at studying languages and I really enjoy it, but I think there is no point in getting the DipTrans or a masters in translation because there is no future in translation.

Interpreting will last longer, surely? What about that? What language pairs are most in demand I wonder...

You are absolutely wrong about translators jobs being replaced by computers. People trust humans over computers any day of the week.

Interpreting sure. Pays really well if you know an EU language. And certainly in the UK if you can interpret for sign language you've got job security for life.

I don't think I am wrong, when I started learning Spanish just 6 years ago the going rate for a translation was 26 cents a word, and google translator was unheard of. Now the going rate for a human is 2-5cents a word, outsourcing and google translator seem to have destroyed this industry.

I live in Ireland, there are no free resources for learning ISL, classes are expensive, a degree in it takes years and has 90% drop out rate, and it isn't an official language so there aren't that many jobs in it.

I would like to be an interpreter, yes indeed.

What is the best way to learn relatively obscure dead languages? I'm interested in learning either Coptic or Koine Greek (or both?) for religious study, though I'm largely lacking in resources. I've found some Coptic PDFs around the internet and a scan of Introduction to Sahidic Coptic, but that doesn't seem like enough to successfully learn how to read Gnostic scriptures. And I don't have any resources at all for Koine. Does anyone here know anything about these?

I'm also interested in Mesopotamian stuff, but Akkadian and Sumerian seem like they'd be more difficult to learn.

Hey OP, I'm a grad student in the Classics. I am pretty good at Attic and Latin, and I've got some good news: free resources for learning both abound. I know you said you are more interested in learning Koine, but I think the real reason to start with Attic is simply that the learning tools are more accessible and available. You can absolutely learn outside of school, so long as you have discipline! All it'll take is about 30 minutes - 1 hour a day, every day for a year or so and you'll be reading in no time.

Pick any starting Attic textbook (I used Hanson & Quinn as a beginner; there are however literally hundreds of great places to start) and after that just download pdfs of "intermediate readers" like Geoffery Steadman's (google him -- his stuff is all free) until you feel comfortable reading!

Good luck!
