Almost all larger translation companies strive to be up to date with the latest world events related to translating. This, today a job, in ancient times was considered art. Languages are changing and so are translation methods. The requirements translators are faced with today are different from those which existed a couple of hundreds of years ago. Historically, translations were most often done for academic purposes, to understand the works written in Latin or Greek. Today, however, translations for scientific purposes are only one part of the whole. Translations for commercial purposes are becoming more and more in demand.
