The aim of this study is to investigate translation from the perspective of those who train and employ translators by analyzing the translator’s profile survey results that were collected between January 2014 and December 2014. 48 translation teachers from 21 universities and 117 translation industry representatives, mostly from Ukraine were asked about the importance of a set of competences required for a translator. Based on empirical evidence collected from the survey, this article attempts to evaluate the current state of the profession in Ukraine and to determine the ways of collaboration between translation business and universities. The authors detect sources of possible conflicts of interest and the factors that may resolve them.
