I am an undergraduate student in University, studying French and German.
I am interested in getting into freelance translation of texts on the internet, translating from French or German into English.
This usually includes two types of jobs:
- Translation of text.
- Proofreading of other translations.
I want to know what sort of qualifications are required to do this.
For example, does one need a degree, certification, etc? Or does one just have to be competent enough in the language to do this?
