Question: How do I become a licensed translator?
Answer: You have to be careful when calling yourself a licensed translator because depending on what country you are in there are restrictions on what it means or how you can become a licensed translator. To make matters more confusing in some states or countries you may be referred to as a registered translator instead of a licensed translator. Make sure and do some thorough research before earning credentials and once you do make sure you spell out what type of certified or licensed translator you are, by using the initials or abbreviation of the certification or licensing program.
