Please help me achieve my goal of becoming a certified translator!
I have been dreaming of becoming a translator since I was 12. In and outside school I have learned seven languages, of which I am most fluent and confident in English (and German of course, my mother tongue).
The IoLET DipTrans is an officially recognised certificate by the UK Chartered Institute of Linguists which would help me finally make my dream of working full-time as a translator come true. The fee of the exam (which consists of three part-exams) is already £600-1000, a lot of money for me! So to make sure I am well prepared and ready to sit the exam, I'd like to take the three free-standing preparation courses by the City University London. These prepare you for the different tasks and parts of the exams, which in difficulty are equal to a post-graduate degree.
So what am I asking for?
Each preparation course comes at the cost of £425, so the cost for all three together would be £1275. Any donation, how little it may be, would help me towards my goal and give me the chance to soon start working as a translator. I would really appreciate any support and show my gratitude in making donations to other great projects in return in the future, when I hopefully make a good living off translation and other language-related sercvices.
Many many thanks in advance if you have even considered reading my pledge up to this point!
