An interpreter translates spoken or signed words from one language to another, which requires fluency in at least two languages. Interpreters may translate foreign or local languages, as well as Sign Language depending on their area of specialization.
Interpreters work in various industries, such as government, healthcare and academic settings. Travel might be involved, and interpreting may become stressful with communicators who continue at a fast pace even in the presence of an interpreter.
