What is professional interpreter
A professional language interpreter renders, conveys or reformulates information or messages interlingually in real time without omitting, adding, embellishing or distorting the information.
Interpreting is a “…complex activity of instantaneously or semi-instantaneously listening to a message, converting it into another language, and rendering it verbally on the spot without missing a beat…”*
The Cognitive Process of Interpreting
“First, an interpreter must listen to the source-language essage and ensure comprehension, “a complex activity that is the product of a complete activity of cognitive operations, such as analysis-synthesis, deduction-induction, abstraction- materialization, and comparison.”2
