Interpreters translate oral communication from one language to another during speeches, meetings, conferences, debates or in front of courts/tribunals. They may specialize in court, parliamentary or conference interpretation.

How to become: Interpreters

In general, to be a translator, terminologist or interpreter, you usually need a university degree with specialization in your related field such as translation, terminology or interpretation. You also need specialization in two languages, one of which should be an official language of Canada.

A university degree in a related field such as languages or linguistics plus courses in linguistic transfer and two years' experience as a translator or five years' experience as a translator may substitute for a specialized university degree.
