Hi,

My name is Don. I just joined as a free member. I am very interested in becoming a translator and/or an interpreter. I have been a 3rd grade teacher and am teaching in a program that teaches English and Spanish. Besides this I have been interpreting in church for up to 6 hours at a time. I have been trying to find out what I need to do to be a translator/interpreter as a home business. I have seen people mentioning credentials etc. I really don't know what that entails and am most interested in finding out. Also, do I need to have a certification? If so what is the process and the time frame? Please help.

Thank you,
Don
