Hello,



I would like some help with finding a translation school, university or wherever I need to go to get my translation degree. I graduated here in Peru in translation, 3 years of studies and I will be moving to Monmouth - New Jersey. I have a degree here, I guess I need a U.S. degree to work there. Can anybody help me?

Thanks

Lucia \'Pamela\' Peralta (my first name is Lucia but I like to be called Pamela, my middle name)

Academic degrees can be convalidated by institutional and diplomatic procedures. At any rate, translation schools in the US are pretty scarce (there are more isolated translation-related subjects integrated into other courses than translation courses per se). According to the ATA, the US graduates around 200 translators a year -- not many, which makes testing practically necessary. Depending on where you end up, it might pose a problem. Try researching your area if you decide a second degree is interesting. If not, study how you can have the qualification you hold be recognized. (If opting for further study, this is almost always at the chosen University\'s discretion).
