Interpretation and Translation Services-The Similarities and Differences Between these Two Services
Without going the long way, at face value we will consider interpretation services as those services which are used to facilitate a communication or conversation involving two people who speak different languages attempting to hold a conversation among themselves while the services of a translator is that which will involve the actual translation or rewriting of a document of some kind from one language to another without actually losing the accuracy of the document and its intended communication in the original language into another language. When you hear of it like so, one may see the two as rather similar and just the same while in practice, they are nothing but two very different sets of practice. We are getting into the actual differences and the bear similarities that these two really have to give us in the following parts of the article.
We will first see how the timing for the services tends to set them apart. It is a fact that the translation services are always given by the service oftentimes in private and over some period of time while for the interpretation services, you will have them in the very time of the conversation, even as the conversation takes place. Translation services are often never quite particular with the speed of thinking of the individual offering them and are also seen to benefit some way from the slow writers who have the knack for being meticulous with their trade. Since translation allows for the service to have more time to have the work done, they will require the particular production to have an emphasis on the quality of the text in correctness and not merely having the meaning of the work relayed right.
On the other hand, interpretation services are just but interested in moving the information as smoothly as possible. The interpreter needs to have a very good knowledge of how tone and inflection works its way into an individual speech and the varied assumptions that are part of the language and communication styles for the different cultures and languages of the parties they are serving for interpretation. However, in actual sense an interpreter will not be able to approach his services with such an equal measure of care as a translator would have and will be particularly focused on rendering the meaning to facilitate the flow of the conversation between the two parties in the conversation without losing significant meaning. Thus in this we find that a good interpreter should basically have the qualities of being a fast think who can do it with ease while on course with the conversation or debate as contrasted to the fact that a translator must not necessarily be in possession of the traits of being a fat thinker but meticulous with their production. The interpreter as well needs to have the additional qualities of ability to work with people and have the ability to read their minds as a step to ensure that they actually have their true intents passed across.
