IAPTI -INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PROFESSIONAL TRANSLATORS AND INTERPRETERS | Interpreter | Scoop.it

The IAPTI firmly believes that outsourcing and allowing the profession to be regulated by agencies is contrary to the interests of justice and not in the best interest of the profession or those who need interpreting and translation services.

Ewandro Magalhães: Things I wish I knew as an interpreter

Ewandro Magalhães: Things I wish I knew as an interpreter | Interpreter | Scoop.it

Lesson # 1: Quality is a package
One's interpretive abilities, accuracy and smooth delivery rank high up on any chief interpreter's checklist, of course. But so do punctuality, teamwork skills, flexibility and, most importantly, manners, — both in and out of the booth. The best interpreters are the ones that get the job done unassumingly while making it easier for everyone to do the same, including the chief. They work diligently on their languages as well as their people skills. By contrast, arrogant, overdemanding colleagues make it all about themselves and risk having relative gains in performance (if any) overcast by the toxic atmosphere they end up creating. All things considered, I guess any chief interpreter would prefer a really good interpreter with a great attitude over an excellent interpreter with a poor attitude. Take-home point: be good, but be nice.
