Getting licensed as an interpreter?
July 2, 2014 5:23 PM Subscribe
I would like to become a spoken language interpreter for Chinese, Japanese, Spanish (to English). My mom is an interpreter and said that Pacific Interpreters
does licensing that is valid nationwide. Are there other companies that do licensing nationwide?

I'd like to explore my options for national licensing in interpretation. I don't even know how the licensing is regulated, but my mom seems to think that there is some national licensing that is done through pacific interpreters (.com) who else does the same thing?
What are the pros/cons of other companies? Which would be cheapest? Would I have to pay several times since it's several differnet languages? If it matters I plan to do interpretation in Columbus Ohio, and hopefully eventually set up an interpreters cooperative like this one in Wisconsin
