I am a translator in Romania, certified by the Romanian Ministry of Justice. How could I obtain the same status in UK?
What are the necessary steps. (I am university graduate- 2 universities, I have experience as a translator and as a teacher-more than 10 years)

Thanks o lot for the future answer...

There's no such thing as an "official translator" in the UK.

Contact the CIoL Sep 7, 2015

While anyone can call themselves a translator in the UK, you can join the CIoL and/or the ITI

http://www.ciol.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=featured&Itemid=435

http://www.iti.org.uk/

You will not automatically be able to join, but with your qualifications and experience, they can tell you what is necessary.

The Dip.Trans, an exam set by the CIoL, is a respected qualification, and members of those two institutes are the nearest you will get to official translators in the UK.

Best of luck.
