Translators, Terminologists, and Interpreters

Translators translate written material from one language to another. Interpreters translate oral communication from one language to another during speeches, meetings, conferences, debates, and conversation, or in court or before administrative tribunals. Terminologists conduct research to itemize terms connected with a certain field, define them, and find equivalents in another language. Sign language interpreters use sign language to translate spoken language and vice versa during meetings, conversations, television programs, or in other instances. Translators, terminologists, and interpreters are employed by government, private translation and interpretation agencies, in-house translation services, large private corporations, international organizations and the media, or they may be self-employed. Sign language interpreters work in schools and courts, and for social service agencies, interpretation services, government services, and television stations, or they may be self-employed. (Source: Working in Canada)
