Brief about the three indispensable elements to be a professional translator

The dream to be a professional translator has been in my mind since the day I selected English as my major.
I strongly believe that translation is not simply a tool to express the meaning word by word, but it is a necessary bridge to connect the different languages and cultures. While, it is not  a day job to be a professional translator, which need the persist learning, improvement. As per my translation experience, I think there are three key points to be an outstanding translator as following:
a. the meticulous working style: translation is a job which need you be patient and detail-oriented enough;
b. the solid language knowledge: it needs you to express the meaning from one language to another with very native way, not just simply word by word. Translation should be done under the consideration of the different cultures so as to transfer the exact meaning for the different cultures;
c. the life-time learning habit: there is no limit for translation, it is necessary to keep learning in your whole life, otherwise, you will be lag behind with the time goes by.

The three points as above are the most essential elements to be a good translator in my eyes.
Keeping learning, keeping improvement, keep your life being alive.
