Hola a todos/-as:



Tengo intención de trasladarme a vivir al Reino Unido por una larga temporada y me gustaría allí seguir con mi actividad como traductora autónoma. Me he estado informando de los requisitos de residencia, fiscales, etc. Pero me ha surgido una duda: ¿Existe en el Reino Unido algún requisito de formación para ejercer como traductor? ¿Existe un Colegio de Traductores o algo por el estilo en el que sea obligatorio colegiarse? Agradezco todas vuestras respuestas.



Un cordial saludo

Translator qualfiications Feb 17, 2003

There is no single official certification system for translators. However, most agencies will require:



- At least education to degree level in your source language

- Several years\' commercial experience

- Ideally, a degree in translation studies



There are two main translators\' bodies which issue diplomas, the Institute of Linguists (www.iol.org.uk) and the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (www.iti.org.uk).



If you have a diploma from either it is a basic guarantee of quality for a client. Both of them also have translator directories which are used by translation buyers. Both websites have a lot of useful information for translators.



You should also give yourself an English-language entry on Proz!



I wish you luck!
