Urge the UN to protect translators and interpreters worldwide | NOTIZIE DAL MONDO DELLA TRADUZIONE | Scoop.it
The world cannot function without translators and interpreters: We help the public stay informed by interpreting for journalists; we keep everyone safe by translating terrorism chatter pulled from the airwaves; we assist with delivering humanitarian aid to those in need; we act as language bridges for armed forces; we ensure due process and justice in courts and tribunals; we facilitate truth and reconciliation proceedings; we keep peace negotiations going in various international forums. And we transcend conflict by translating culture to reach people everywhere.

Businesses expected to need more interpreters, translators by 2022

Businesses expected to need more interpreters, translators by 2022 | NOTIZIE DAL MONDO DELLA TRADUZIONE | Scoop.it

Melissa Murrell, an interpreter who owns Deep South Language Services in Montgomery, said businesses related to education, medical and legal industries have continually added bilingual workers or contracted with interpreters throughout the Southeast over the last several years.
According to the bureau, the demand is expected to be strong for several languages, including French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, and other Middle Eastern and Asian languages. Murrell said it is essential interpreters and translators be properly trained in order for businesses to avoid liability that could arise from speech barriers and misinterpretations. She is partnering with the Small Business Development Center at Troy University to host an introductory interpreter training course at Troy University Dothan on Oct. 2 and 3 that helps workers understand the difference between interpreting and being bilingual.

The Changing Face of Translation and Interpreting – ITD 2015 | FIT | NOTIZIE DAL MONDO DELLA TRADUZIONE | Scoop.it

We are yet to discover the tools that will help us in the future.

Maha El-Metwally - Conference Interpreter

Maha El-Metwally - Conference Interpreter | NOTIZIE DAL MONDO DELLA TRADUZIONE | Scoop.it
Conference interpreters make sure that everybody understands what everybody else is saying. To minimise delays, conference interpreters interpret ‘simultaneously’: they instantly interpret what they hear the speaker say. This means that conference interpreters listen and talk at the same time – and that requires special powers!

A word in your ear: the interpreters who speak for world leaders | NOTIZIE DAL MONDO DELLA TRADUZIONE | Scoop.it

There are few professions that offer a front-row seat to history, or a chance to rub shoulders with world leaders, as well as the odd tyrant. Interpreting is one of them, and it is interpreters who have given us some of the 20th century's best phrases.
