Most jobs are "credential required", what does it mean? And what about "certification"?

Good question Jun 11, 2004

I don't think anyone can give a specific answer to that, much less the person who is asking for it.

Therefore if you have any kind of pertinent college degree or certification from a government agency, are certified by or belong to any translating/interpreting association (such as ATA), status as a sworn translator in countries where this exists, some coursework or a diploma course in the field from any educational institution, etc. then mention it.

If you do not have any of the above, you might consider at least joining some translating/interpreting association even though it does not offer any accreditation of your abilities. At the very least it is something to put down.

Who knows? Maybe one day Proz.com can issue us some sort of recognition based on our performance herein. Not a bad idea. What do the rest of you think?

You mean as in "most likely to agree"?

I think it's a perfect idea. Though in the U.S. there are associatios for almost everything that issue such "credentials", that's not the case in other countries...
