Interpreters convert spoken or sign language statements from one language to another. They work in situations where people who do not speak the same language need to understand one another.

Interpreting involves listening to, understanding and memorising content in the original 'source' language, then reproducing statements, questions and speeches in a different 'target' language. This is often done in only one direction, normally into the interpreter's native language, but may be on a two-way basis.

Interpreters will work in the following settings:

Business functions such as meetings, conferences, exhibitions and product launches;

Criminal justice proceedings, known as public service interpreting (PSI), including police and probation service interviews, courts;

Hearings, solicitor interviews, arbitration hearings and immigration tribunals;

Community-based events and assignments within the education, health and social services sectors.
