What is the difference between a translator and an interpreter?

A translator converts written or typed text from one language into another. Translators can work in-house for a translation agency, or they can work remotely as independent translators or language service providers. Translation of important information requires more time, often several days, to make sure it is accurate and well-written. A translator must be an excellent reader and writer in two or more languages.

An interpreter converts spoken or signed language from one language into another. Interpreters can work in person, over the phone, or using live chat software. Interpreters must have great communication skills and must be fluent in speaking two or more languages. The range of skills interpreters need goes beyond what is mentioned here.
