Given the relative invisibility of translators and interpreters as an occupation, they are hardly studied as a social group, either in the field of TS or in the sociology of professions. Our research aims to analyze their construction of a sense of an occupational identity and strategies of status improvement, drawing on interviews with six subgroups in the field (literary and non-literary translators, subtitlers, conference, community, court and signed-language interpreters)
