Question by Sophia: How do I become a Translator?
I am in High School and considering becoming a translator. English is my native language, but I learned Spanish at a young age and speak it very well. I went to a dual-language school in elementary and middle school, and continue to take Spanish now. What would be my steps to become a translator? What degrees would I have to acquire in college, and what kind of work would I be doing?
