I am looking for names of reputable programs which offer certification in translating. I have been translating for several years French/English and occasionally vice-versa due to dependable personal referrences; however, I would like to receive certification - preferrably somewhere that is reputable and affordable. (Sorry, I realize this question was posted last year and I cannot locate my notes on this topic).


Also, in your opinion, is an \"official\" certification \"needed\" or required in most countries? In the U.S., the \"requirements\" are often no more than having a few years of a language (which of course is not good, and is fuel for another entire topic!).


Thank you.

Lynelle

Very reputable.


As for certification, even if not legally required, it\'s hardly a bad thing for a translator to study translation, since ut is more than a question of language knowledge.


Also it\'s the way things are going. Right now in Ireland, there is so much interpreting in court going on that is dubious that quite a polemic has been raised...


I thinlk the days of the non-qualified translator are numbered..
