In Beijing translation company, our company has a large number of interpreters. Do you know what qualities a qualified interpreter needs? Here is a detailed introduction:
1. Agile thinking
Thinking agility is a must for a qualified interpreter to master, because the conversation between clients will not give you enough time to think. When you hear a complete sentence, you need to understand, translate, express accurately and make it easy for people to accept. This is equivalent to a fierce football match, when teammates pass the ball to you, you need to make the most agile judgment Break.
2. Profound knowledge
Interpreters and translators should not only be able to translate the language of this country, but also understand the local customs and customs, so as to avoid the embarrassing phenomenon caused by cultural differences. Because translators often encounter different types of meetings and daily conversations between different groups of people. Although they can't do everything, they can't understand nothing A qualified translator with profound knowledge should master, try to learn politics, economy, diplomacy, business and other knowledge, and enrich himself with knowledge.
3. Excellent memory
Memory is the most basic quality of an interpreter. In the process of translation, it is impossible for clients to give you time to read dictionaries, materials and books, etc., so you must increase your vocabulary, and memory will come into use. At the same time, when the translator records the content, he can only remember the key content due to the time limit, so as an interpreter, he must have outstanding memory.
4. Sense of responsibility
The sense of responsibility is a responsible attitude towards one's own work. It is a must for a staff member to establish professional ethics, be responsible for one's own reputation, and be responsible for one's own image at the same time. Because the market contacts with foreign guests, each translation task should be taken seriously.
