I recently received an email at the blog, and thought that it might be an interesting question to start a community discussion…
I have been considering doing a course in translation with a view to working as a freelance translator. I have been mulling over my options online. My background is I have a Combined Law degree in English and French Law from the University of Reading, with my ERASMUS year at the Universite de Paris X.
Can you advise on the best distance learning translation course to embark on? I live in London and am a mother to a young child, so I couldn’t possibly do full time. What are your thoughts on the Diploma in Translation (IoLETS) qualification? Yay? Nay? Better to enrol in a full Masters program?
All advice that you can offer will be welcome! Please comment below this post to share your views.
