With a global economy comes the demand for individuals with a set of skills that can facilitate communication across a variety of fields in multiple languages. Interpreter jobs range from work in the private sector to government run business. These jobs require the interpreter to be bilingual, quick-thinking, and clear. These professionals often obtain certification in a particular branch of language interpretation (such as medical, business, or judicial).

Working in the world of international business, interpreters may find themselves alongside company executives and dealmakers. They often attend conferences (including video and telephone conferences), negotiations, and meetings to make certain that everyone involved in a multi-lingual team understands one another and to ensure a smooth completion of international deals. Knowledge of the business world and its intricate jargon is a must.

Medical interpreters might find themselves in the examination room explaining charts and procedures to a patient, or aiding doctors with understanding patients’ symptoms for a proper diagnosis. They will often aid in relating a patient’s needs during their stay at a hospital. Clarity and a depth of medical vocabulary are crucial, as any error could be a matter of life or death.

Government and court interpreter jobs are often found at the state or local level, where a vast knowledge of legalese is required. Outside of the courtroom, work can be found in military branches for those willing to venture into warzones to assist communication between armed forces and the local populous. There is an increasing demand for interpreters on the international level where, for example, work at the UN or throughout the EU may be found. These interpreters work closest with policy makers and statesmen involved in political outreach to foreign speaking communities.
