Question by B.Cali: I want to become a interpreter/translator how do I become certified?
I’ve always wanted to pursue this career choice. How do I become certified? I would like to translate at courts or hospitals. How do I go about it? I know translating is written and I’d like to do that too but interpreting is my main interest. Thank you in advance 🙂 (English/Spanish) and I live in San Diego, California.
I’m 23 and hoping to get certified. Is there a special school for this?

Well, you haven’t mentioned your age….if you’re still in high school, you could easily talk to a school counsellor about what nearby colleges/universities would have the right courses for you. If you’ve already graduated, you can call up the colleges/universities you’re hoping to get into and make appointments to talk to their career counsellors – they help you layout everything: what courses you’ll need, how long it will take for you to get certified, suggestions on what courses to take which semester….etc.

    In the state of California there are certification exams for both medical and judicial interpreters.
    The majority of interpreters are equally proficient in both oral and written communication. In fact to pass the exams you must show proficiency in both oral and written. Of course, you are correct, there are jobs that are either heavier in oral or written.

    Here is a web page that will provide you with quite a bit of information:

    They also provide links to medical interpreting information.

    Buena Suerte!
