Becoming a Translator

Are you interested in becoming a translator? But not sure where to start?⁠

It’s always a good idea to look into higher education programs specializing in translation and linguistics. If you don’t have that much time you can find online training such as “Training for Translators” in which they offer online courses, challenge groups, blogs with great information, books and much more! ⁠

It is also a good idea to become a member of an association to further education and become certified. American Translators Association is a very well known organization with recognizing credentials and a great certification program.⁠

In order to pass the ATA certification translators should pass a rigorous exam that assesses language skills, comprehension of the source language text, translation techniques, and writing skills.⁠
