Hi!
I'm new here, so bare with me.
I see that some kind of certification is required if you´re going to get any assignments.

Plz tell me what this cretification is and how to get it?

Regards
Tony

Bare with you? Mar 25, 2005

Hi Tony,
welcome, but baring with each other is not part of the ritual of becoming part of the ProZ community.
You don't necessarily have to be certified either, to become a translator.
Seriously, that varies from country to country. It would be quite useful to create an information database on the subject. Some clients and agencies demand it, without having the faintest idea, what it is they are asking, or if in their country there is a requirement, they assume, that it is the same everywhere. Others are much more interested in what you have to offer as a translator.
In the UK you can have diplomas, exams, be member of a couple of prpfessinal organisations, but there is no such thing as "certified translator".
I am sure, you will get more specific answers, and I am just as interested to know about requirements in other countries, as you are.

Good luck

Juvera
