The Interpreter is similar to the Translator, the difference is that the interpreter converts any spoken material from one language to a different language and translator converts written material.

Interpreting can occur in various places such as meetings, conference, telephone meetings, medical assessments etc.

Conference Interpreters  

Usually these interprets are fluent in more than two languages. They are highly skilled and can be found in the United Nations.

 

Sign language Interpreters 

These interpreters help communication between hard of hearing or deaf people with hearing people. Mostly we can find these interpreters in Schools, Colleges and courts.

 

Legal Interpreters 

These interpreters can be found in the courts, law offices, trails and hearings and solicitor-client meetings. These interpreters must have good vocabulary and grammar skills and must have relevant qualifications.

 

Medical Interpreters 

It is really important to have clearly communication between doctors, nurses and patients. The interpreter can help them to understand each other so that patients can understand their treatment plans.

Unique obstacles must be overcome when providing medical care to patients who have an incomplete command of the English language. Serious barriers to effective communication may arise at the exact point where our health care system must succeed or fail.” (Anon, 2018) (To read full article please follow the link below)
