I'm not there yet, but I think this could be something that I could do in the future. What kind of experience would I need before SDL would accept me as a trainer? I'm presuming that I would need the highest level of certification and then perhaps X years experience of translating, I already have teaching qualifications. I have looked on SDL's website, but it seems that they want to know what rate I would charge before they give out any details.... I may have missed the correct section of the site.

Does anyone think that it is a worthwhile avenue to pursue? Could it be an interesting line of business?

Any comments...

Thanks in advance,

Contact SDL directly Feb 6, 2009

I'm afraid this is nothing we can easily find out here on ProZ, so I would simply advice you to contact the SDL headquaters in Maidenhead. You will find the number on
The person in charge is Gina Davies.

Good luck and BR
