6What is the difference between interpretation and translation services?
Translation is transferring text in writing from one language to another. For example, you may need to translate to English a birth certificate written originally in Spanish before getting married in the United States. Also, an organization may need to translate an employee manual written originally in English to Spanish so that their Spanish speaking staff can understand it accurately.

Interpreting is transferring orally (by speaking) what is said in one language to another. For example, a Spanish speaking individual may need an interpreter for an appointment with an English-speaking doctor to make sure they communicate accurately. Likewise, a company may need an interpreter for a benefit’s enrollment presentation to interpret for its Spanish speaking staff.
7Are interpretations done in-person or online?
Both options are available and effective. They may be scheduled in-person or online.
