Hi.

I want to become a professional translator. I've translated a couple of books via Babelcube, but I want to be able to apply to other jobs in the future.

I want to know what kind of online certifications are there. I've looked in the forums, but there is so much information for a newcomer that is confusing.

I live in Chile and want to translate from English to Spanish.

What do you advice?

If you're serious about working as a professional translator, don't waste your time with online certifications. Go (back) to college, get a solid degree (not necessarily in translation). Keep improving your writing in both English and Spanish. Good luck.

Thank You! Nov 28, 2016

I see. So, having skills seems more important than proving to have them. That's good news. I believe I have a couple of years of hard work ahead.

Thank you for the advice, Mario.
