What Skills Should a Conference Interpreter Have?

Conference interpreters require a very specific skillset. At a minimum, they should be formally educated language service providers, normally with specific qualifications in conference interpreting, fully vetted and with relevant experience working within their client’s specific industry sector.

As well as linguistic prowess and thorough understanding of the subject matter, conference interpreters will also possess personal skills such as concentration, recall, mental dexterity, quick-thinking and the ability to remain calm under consistent pressure.
