Shawn (Shoaib)’s Answer

There is well know school in Monterey CA (Monterey institute of International studies) that has programs for translations and translation services. I am not necessarily promoting the school (just know about it since an ex graduated from there and was a translation manager for a translation company).

Your best bet is glassdoor and LinkedIn to do job research and look at current jobs and what they are asking for in terms of requirements. Not sure you where in VA you are in relation to DC, but I would look to see if in DC or close to you are companies that have or offer translation services, call them and ask if they have internships.

Shawn (Shoaib) recommends the following next steps:

Reserch jobs on Glassdoor and Linked
look for internships at companies that offer translation services

M’s Answer

A degree is not always required, but most employers prefer an applicant who holds a bachelor's degree with some formal coursework in interpreting.
