What does an interpreter do?

Interpreters use spoken words (not written: that's what translators do!) to facilitate communication between people who speak different languages. Interpreting has a few different "flavors":

  • Simultaneous: interpreting while the original speaker talks (this is what I'm doing in the photograph below!)

  • Consecutive: waiting for the original speaker to finish (either a few sentences or an entire speech), then interpreting

  • Sight translation: interpreting from a written document instead of from a speaker

Some of my recent assignments (I love my job!)

  • Consecutive interpreting for legal depositions (workers' compensation, car accidents, wage theft)

  • Simultaneous interpreting for public-sector accounting and financial management courses

  • Simultaneous interpreting for week-long labor union trainings (emergency response, collective bargaining, union leadership)

  • Consecutive interpreting for interviews between subject-matter experts and management consultants

  • Simultaneous interpreting for maternal/child health trainings for public health professionals

  • Court appearances, from arraignments, to motions hearings, to criminal trials
