3 Ways To Spot a Good Interpreter

The 3 main things you want to make sure you want in a quality interpreter are the following:

1. Humility: there is nothing worse than a wannabe interpreter who is too overconfident

2. Willingness to learn an improve: an interpreter is in constant training

3. Professional attitude: in all respects, from the dress code to the way he /she interacts with involved parties.

Although these points might seem vague at first sight, all the minor little things you also need to think about are already intertwined into these three elements.
