This report introduces you to the work of two types of foreign-language specialists, the translator and the interpreter. The terms are sometimes used interchangeably, but that's a mistake. Translation involves rendering written material from one language into another, and interpretation is doing the same with spoken words. And although they both take something that's in one language and communicate it to people who understand another language, translators and interpreters face very different tasks in their daily work.
