As we’ve said before in this blog, just being able to speak another language does not make you an interpreter. Professional interpreters have done much training and study to get into the field, they may have also spent a significant amount of time in another field such as law or medicine before making the lateral move into a language profession. As such they have much more than just language skills. In this blog post we’ll look at 5 skills interpreters require to really be successful as a professional.
For liaison interpreting or simultaneous interpreting the interpreter needs an excellent short-term memory as they won’t be able to rely on notes and will need to recall everything that has just been said.
Being recognized as a reliable interpreter can take time and a lot of hard work, but being a member of a recognized body such as the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) or the Chartered Institute of Linguists in the UK, or the American Translators’ Association is one step to adding to your credibility. It also gives you access to you a wide network of your peers who can support you, provide guidance and advice and potentially recommend you for jobs also.

I have translated multiple projects with Rosetta now and I cannot emphasise how great the service they provide is; quality, turnaround time and pricing is the best I have found yet. The qualities of translations we receive are of the highest standard and communication from the start of a project to the end is consistent.
For a company looking into translations, I would highly recommend Rosetta as first pick, as the support and service they provide is first class.
