Risk Consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers - Service Delivery Center (PwC SDC)
I'm really interested in becoming an interpreter for a company or something like that, I'm just not quite sure what I have to major in to be able to become one. I'm fluent in both Spanish and English and recently I've been learning Korean and Italian.
Do I have to take business classes if I want to interpret in a company or do I just focus on the languages? #college #language #spanish #interpretation #korean

There are college programs that offer simultaneous and consecutive interpretation training. Aside from that, if you become an expert in a specialized area (medical, business, law) it will be even easier to get into this profession. Have you considered trying out as an interpreter at a hospital? Most larger facilities have an interpretation program for volunteers. If you sign up you can find out if this is something that you really feel passionate about.
