 Do you know the difference between an interpreter and a translator?

Translators write.  Interpreters speak.

Interpreters:

For as long as mankind has spoken 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 in saving many lives.

Translators:

Shortly after humankind began to speak, they began to write.  Diplomacy and trade documents require competent translation. Evidence in court must be translated in order to determine a just decision. Written medical instructions are useless if a patient can't read them, requiring the need of a skilled translator. 

Both interpreting and translation are beautiful and noble sister professions!
