Eligibility to Become a TranslatorWhat does it take to become a translator? How can I be eligible to become a professional translator?
Those are questions that you might have asked yourself when you first thought about applying for a certified translator program or simply wondered about the skills one should have to secure a professional translator job position.
You don’t need an undergraduate diploma or any specific academic certification to be eligible to become a translator.
You may already be eligible to become a professional translator if:
- You have had over 12 months of experience either working or studying a language other than your native language;
- You have lived abroad and you have the knowledge of both, the source and target languages;
- You are familiar with the language and also with the culture of the language being used;
- You have the facility to speak and write a foreigner language correctly.
If you have these skills and you personally enjoy translating and intend to make this your full or part-time job, then you should take the first step and enroll in a certified translation program today.
