Hello, My name is Kamila and I would like to start a new carrier in interpreting world. I am trying to find out what do I need to do to become one? What qualification do I need and where to gain them? I was trying to find some answers online but most of the websites I gone through don't exactly explain where to start. Could you help me please. Thanks :)

This is one place to start looking - AIIC, Advice to students wishing to become interpreters As David says, there are lots more out there.
The first think you need is a normal degree, usually an MA now in Europe.
Before, during or after this you need to have achieved a level equivalent to educated native-speaker in whichever languages you want to work with.
Then you should take a Post-Graduate MA in Conference Interpreting from one of the schools listed in AIIC's Schools Finder. It's not an exhaustive list, but it's got almost all the best schools in it.
