Spanish Interpreter Series: The Business Interpreter

In our final post for the Spanish interpreter series, we’ll delve into the professional life of a Spanish business interpreter. With globalization opening the virtual doors to business opportunities abroad, communicating effectively in a foreign language has never been more important. As such, the role of a business interpreter is crucial in ensuring that no message is lost in interpretation because in business, mistakes can be costly.

The Hispanic market is one of the major international markets in the world especially in the US, and a Spanish business interpreter is always an added value to any business.

A business interpreter may work in any aspect of the business as needed, and as such, must have specialized knowledge and training of each field. Part of the work will sometimes involve acting as escort interpreter who accompanies a person or a delegation on a tour, meeting or interview.

A business interpreter might also be asked to interpret in small-scale business meetings or gatherings such as seminars, workshops, visits or interviews. He/She might also be called in to assist a company’s in-house customer support team to facilitate communication with a foreign client.

A business interpreter must also be sensitive of cultural traditions and customs because he/she will act as the “bridge” between the guest and the client.

As in other types of interpreters, a college degree and field specialized certifications are minimum requirements.
