Dear friends,

I have both a bachelor and a master degree educated in English but without a interpreting or translation component. I also have experience in general interpretingt and would like to further it to court interpreting.

Can anyone give me some advice or information on how to become a certified court interpreter in UK?

Thank you.

LuciaC,

Thanks a lot. It looks like I will need to catch next year's exams. Did you take the exams yourself? You know how long does it normally take to prepare? Can I self study then sit the exams in exam centre?
Thanks in advance.

I don't know much about this qualification but if you search DPSI in the forums archive you will find a lot of old threads.

Best wishes,
Lucia
