What is the difference between a translation certificate and an interpreter certificate?
- Translation certificate: A translation certificate will provide bilingual adults with the training and education required for a successful career translating documents. Our translator certification course prepares students to read and comprehend complex written texts that regularly use advanced terminology (in fields like law, medical, government and education) from the source language, and convert it into another language without detection.
- Interpreter certificate: An interpreting certificate will prepare bilingual adults for a career as an interpreter in the field of your choosing. Becoming an interpreter involves mastering a specific set of skills that allow students to interpret verbal conversations in different industry settings. Our online interpreter training courses are separated by industry because they demand a different understanding from interpreters. For instance, medical interpreter training offers an in-depth, comprehensive understanding of the terminology and medical concepts used by doctors and patients on a regular basis that legal interpreters simply don't have to rely upon to be successful legal interpreters.
So then, what is translation localization training?
"Translation" is the process of converting written text from one language to another. An example of this is changing the word "Apples" to "Manzanas" or vice versa.
“Localization” on the other hand, is much more than simply translating from one language to another. Localization refers to the process of adapting a product or service and all the cultural and non-textual components that go along with it. For example, let's say there is a United States hosted webpage with a recipe for apple pie. The localization process would involve adapting the webpage for United Kingdom audience, and would therefore be changed to an apple crumble recipe.
What can I do with a localization and translation certificate?
After completing translation and localization training, students who successfully pass the courses will receive a translation certificate that will serve as proof of classroom hours and knowledge gained. Bilingual adult students can find work in any industry that requires document translation- which is a lot! Finding work as a court translator, a bilingual liaison or language services manager is a viable career option, although students should be advised that a "certificate" is not the same thing as "certification." A “certificate” of training/education is offered by an educational institution or organization. Certification is offered by an independent organization after you take and pass an exam to become “certified.” The Translation and Localization Certificate Training Course will provide the knowledge and skills for you to prepare for the Certification Exam.
