One of my favorite videos! I can watch it all the time :D. I am glad these two colleagues conducted a survey and mini interviews to see if the average population is aware of the differences between a translator and an interpreter. As a translator, you have the privilege of taking your time (as long as it's before the deadline, of course) and proofread a perfect masterpiece of the original, unlike interpreting, which is something immediate and fast-paced.

In translation you have the luxury of time, you can make a draft and review it and present your final document. When you're translating, you have to be aware of much more to be aware of. It's more important to be accurate the first time and not disrupt the pace of conversation.
