December is here and we are getting very close to the holiday season so I decided it was time for a new series of season’s greetings cards for translators and interpreters. After a very psychologically challenging year with added stress brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important we take some time to relax and reach out to your loved ones.

Hi there! I’m currently completing my first year of training to become a professional interpreter — a pending subject I’ve had for so long is now becoming a dream come true. I love interpreting as much as translating, but when I’m not actually doing it and I start analyzing carefully what it entails to be a good interpreter I sometimes panic. Your brain is one of your biggest assets and allies, but it can also become your worst enemy. If you start overthinking it, your own thoughts can get in the way of the message the speaker is conveying and you are trying to get across in the target language. So many times, you should simply relax and worry about one utterance at a time.

Happy interpreting!

Send this card to your fellow interpreters to support them on their amazing job and remind them to keep relaxed.

Main differences between translators and interpreters

Differences between translators and interpreters

Translators and interpreters need different skills

See this cartoon in Spanish

Buy Now Button Purchase code TIN1

Hi there. This is the first cartoon in the series about the main differences between translators and interpreters at a glance. Although many times most people use the term “translator” to refer to both professions, these two disciplines require a different set of skills and different types of training, too. I would also say that they require different types of personalities, but we’ll leave that for a future post.

As shown in the cartoon, the first and huge difference resides in the medium of expression as translators work with written texts and interpreters with spoken utterances.

What is your reaction when people mistake these two terms for one another?

Buy this card and use it to illustrate your blog post, article, or lesson.
