Welcome to the happy forums, Natalie. My name is Asep. You know it. We'd love to see you with us and have your views on different things everyday, if possible. Once again, welcome. :)

I always found simultaneous translation really tough. You have to master both languages and be able to speak and listen at the same time. I sometimes tried to do it on my own and ended up nervous :evil: That's why I always admired interpreters. I love translation though.

Anyway, again, welcome to the club, Natalie, and be careful with Asep! ;)

Natalie Daisy wrote: In my native language there is no difference between a name for a person who does a verbal translation and a person who does a written translation, unlike in English, where there is translation (written) and interpretation (verbal). So, what is it like with other languages, say in your native languages?


In Catalan, we've got the same words as in English: Traductor/a and Intèrpret. I guess both words are Romance words, and as you know English borrowed thousands of words from Latin and French, and that justifies the similarity ;)

Hi Natalie,

nice to meet you. My name is Elba Rosa and I from México. I speak spanish and if you have problems learning my lenaguage be sure that I coould help you. I work as a Journalist and some day I think that it would be a good idea to learn your lenguage. Unfurtunally there are few places at this country where I could learn your lenguage and there are far from my office or home.

In formal spanish we used the same words you mentioned, but generaly people only use translation to refer to both activities.

WELCOME NEW FRIEND

To Ayie: It's a pleasure meeting you too. I have heard a lot about you intriguing country. One of the Americans I used to work with comes from Manila. He even tried to teach me some words but unfortunately I forgot them. Because of lack of practice (he left our project!).
Actually, this once again proves that practice is a key factor in mastering the language, any language. And this is exactly what we are all doing here! So, it is difficult to overestimate the importance of interacting on such forums. Thank you, Englishclub! :lol:



Oh, Dixie knows some tagalog words... right dixie?! :D

:D Hello Natalie, your name is really nice.
You are most welcome here in EC forum joining all the wonderful friends.
I'm chemist from Arabian Gulf.
I am oil analyst.
We say " Salam Alaikom " in Arabic means peace on you
this is said when you want to welcome someone.

I think you have a very tough job?haven't you
but don't worry I think it nicer than smeeling the bad used oil smell when you analyse it ;)

See you
Chemist
