Working in language interpretation services has its challenges, however working as an interpreter during a pandemic presents more than usual. Interpreters predominantly work face to face and can be found at large events, international conferences, political summits, and more. Currently, many of these events are on hold, rescheduled, or even banned, while others are exclusively virtual. This does not mean, however, that there is no opportunity for interpreters to find work, but they must adapt to the new landscape.
We are often asked about the difference between interpreters and translators.
Although the difference may seem obvious to us, this is a fair question as both translators and interpreters specialize in delivering a message from one language to another.
