The more the interpreter knows about the event or case, the better and more flawlessly they will interpret. Attorneys graduate from law schools and doctors earn their medical degrees, and all the years of study allow them to become knowledgeable in their specialty. An interpreter needs to master the specialized vocabulary in 2 or more languages, without obtaining the specialized training the individuals practicing…

Language vs Dialect


To begin on the same page, let’s establish a definition of language. According to the Oxford Dictionary… “Language is the method of human communication, either spoken or written, consisting of the use of words in a structured and conventional way.” It’s not something we think about often because, on the surface, it seems obvious that when two speakers cannot understand each other, they are speaking two different languages.

In general, when clients think of translation, they usually think of it in terms of technical texts requiring near-literal translations, such as: Translators try and find as near an equivalent as possible matching the tone, word complexity, technicality, etc. They may use some leeway in adapting the text to regional industry norms, but being accurate to the source takes higher priority. Localization takes translation to the next level by adapting texts for ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­regional consumption. It addresses non-textual elements which translation alone may not, such as: Localization also takes into consideration local laws, rules, and regulations to ensure the content is…

What exactly is a “good” translation?


It might be difficult for an inexperienced client to tell if the requested document translation is of good quality, or not. It is even more difficult to judge the translator’s performance if you don’t know the language you are translating from or into. Gauging what is “good” translation is, to a certain extent, subjective since texts can be generally understood in a variety of different ways. Even after considering the writer’s intention, target audience, and the stylistic feel of a text, there is subjective leeway in how certain things can be translated without one being objectively “better” than the other….

Being Bilingual

Being Bilingual

Often being bilingual is confused with being able to interpret professionally, or being able to evaluate interpretation. Sometimes law firms hire bilingual paralegals to help aid in communication with their clients. Similarly, many doctors’ offices have bilingual assistants to aid in communication with their LEP patients. Even though such an employee is a great asset and can be helpful when interacting with the client, they should be wary of providing interpretation, especially for any depositions or inside the exam room. Interpreting requires extensive training and a rich linguistic background. Saying that anyone bilingual can interpret is like saying that anybody…
