Many translation or interpreting students wonder whether they need a degree in these disciplines in order to do better. Qualifications related to these careers range from a certificate, a diploma, a degree all the way to masters level. But foremost, what is the difference between a translator and an interpreter?
Simply put a translator writes content from one language to another. A translator has the time to research and use various programs to come up with a document in the target language that reflects the original message in the source language. In addition to this, a translator must know the culture of the target language people to create an effective translated work.
