Question by donnya: I desire to be an interpreter/translator. What are the qualifications that I will demand?
For example, What should I major in and what courses should I take. Also, what languages would be best to learn? And where would I go to get experience. I have seen that most interpreter/translator jobs require some experience, but where is the best place to get it???
Answer by Dav
Please don’t try to be professional interpreter. My wife tried that and could not find a job. You would be much better off, in my opinion, to major in international business, and also become proficient in as many of the following as you can: Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, and Arabic, as those are emerging/expanding economies.
