      I cannot remember any single decision about this. At least I did not have a formal education...

       

      What I do remember is that I had a summer jobs at Europian Comission and Apple Computer and liked it very much.

      How did you become a translator?

      It began when I took an extra subject in the university which was named "Business Translation", it called my attention and now 3 years later I am still trying to become a good translator.

      How did you become a translator?

      You can be a professional translator and have no degrees whatsoever, it all depends on the quality of your work. Having said that, though, you're unlikely to close a translating deal (as a freelance translator) or get hired by a translation agency with no degree OR references. Get some degrees that actually prove you have a really good knowledge of both languages, and either ask around for companies needing translators or study translation at a university.

      How did you become a translator?

      I don't remember exactly when it happened, but it was sure before I decided to study it as a degree. Languages were always part of my childhood, and I think my mind has always been going from one to another language.
