Can anyone tell me what is the quickest route to becoming a qualified Japanese/English translator? Please bear in mind that I live in the UK. Thank you!

um, what??

as for actually answering the question, I daresay the first step is attaining fluency. What kind of job translating are you considering? Government or private sector?

It's not clear from the question exactly what you mean.

a) You're already fluent in both Japanese and English and you want to know how to obtain a professional qualification which would aid you in seeking employment

b) You speak no Japanese at present and want to learn the language in order to achieve an ambition later in life of becoming a translator

c) You speak a little Japanese and this has sparked your interest enough to take it further (which for all intents and purposes means the same as b)

Could you clarify which one applies to you? I'm sure someone would be happy to help you when we know where you're coming from.
