Description: Nihongo o hanashimasu ka? Do you speak or read Japanese?If you live in a major city or work for the government or a large corporation, more often than not you will meet someone who speaks another language. When spoken language presents a barrier, Interpreters are called in to broker the conversation.Translators focus on the written language. If it looks like the characters or letters on a page are written in Chinese, Arabic or Spanish, that is probably because they were written in just that. The Translator is tasked with making the written word consumable to a mass audience.These language specialists are fluent in at least two languages, one of which is English.
