What does an Interpreter do?

Interpreters use their knowledge of languages and cultures to convert a spoken or signed language into another spoken or signed language. The job duties of an interpreter include express the meaning and feeling of what is said or signed in another language in the appropriate tone and style within a range of settings, verbally translate written texts or provide simultaneous or consecutive interpretations of conversations or speech.

Interpreters may specialise in a particular language combination (e.g., French and English) or in particular subject areas, such as commerce, law, health, science, technology or welfare.

How to become an Interpreter?

To become an interpreter you must be fluent in another language as well as English. You will also need to complete a vocational training certificate or university qualification.
