And there are many that are the opposite. And then there are in-between people who are not too sure. Interpreting is a great profession in which we can grow and improve ourselves continuously as human beings. This session will explore what makes an interpreter “professional,” not only from the perspective of required skill sets, but also ethically and mentally.
