Hello everyone! I posted this in the Canadian forum, but I thought it may get more views here...

I'm establishing myself as a freelance FR>EN translator, and have received a few jobs here and there in the last year. However they've been few and very far between, too much so to call it my actual job.

I've noticed that a fair amount of postings ask for candidates with degrees/certifications. I've been strongly considering trying to peruse this by distance education. But before I put in potentially thousands of dollars into such a thing, I thought I would do a little research as to what programs are actually recognized by the industry, ProZ, etc. Since I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, and am looking at the common French>English pair of this country, I thought I would limit myself to Canadian based schools...

Any ideas, personal experiences, and so on would be greatly appreciated!

In fact, it is a Collège universitaire Saint-Boniface's program but it is affiliated with U. of Man.

Very good certificate program and they are now offering a B.A.
