Do you know the difference between a translator and an interpreter?
Translators write; interpreters speak.
For as long as mankind has been speaking multiple languages, interpreters have existed. They have been present for peace treaties among nations and have always been essential for trade. Interpreters are necessary for due process in court and have aided medical professionals to save many lives. They have even united people of differing cultures from far away places in the cause of true love!
Shortly after humankind began to speak, they began to write.
Before dignitaries would meet to discuss terms of peace, written letters had to be translated. For as long as business and trade have existed, so have contracts and translators, to assure business equity.
Evidence in court must be translated in order to determine a just decision. Written medical instructions are no good if a patient can't read them, requiring the need of a great translator.
True love has overcome distance and many a love letter has been translated by a skilled poet as well.
Both interpreting and translation are beautiful and noble sister professions!
