Interpreting vs. Translation

 

An Interpreter is an individual who speaks two or more languages and has the ability to remember what was said in language A and repeat it in language B without making any changes or adding any biases. A good interpreter has experience in many fields and can interpret any sort of topic or setting, whether it’s rocket science or a simple PTA meeting.

A Translator is an individual who speaks two or more languages and is a native speaker of the language the document is being translated into. A translator is very knowledgeable in the field of grammar and semantics and makes little or no mistakes when translating a document.
