After working as a translator for some time now, it feels good to make it official. As of today, I am officially certified by the Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia to translate from English to Swedish, and from Swedish to English.
I took the exams back in May, and it was a tough, brain-draining day with one exam in the morning, and one in the afternoon. However, it was worth the sweat, handwriting (the exams are all written by hand) and page-turning in my hardcover thesaurus and dictionary.
What I’ll do with my new linguistic superpowers? Well, I’ll keep working on those subtitle translations, and see what the future brings.
