GUIDELINES FOR SPEECH & LANGUAGE THERAPISTS WORKING WITH INTERPRETERS.

Interpreting is the oral transmission of meaning from one language to another, which is easily understood by the listener. This covers the conversion of speech from one language (including British Sign Language, and other sign languages) to another.

Translation is the written transmission of meaning from one language to another, which is easily understood by the reader. This covers the conversion of written texts from one language or format to another.
