    I can imagine that the job of an interpreter or translator can sometimes become complicated because with foreign languages, you are switching between different cultures as well. Not always does a translation for a specific expression of a language exist because of its connection to cultural aspects that only natives are familiar with. Even if something is translated word for word, it is still possible to lose the actual meaning behind it, or not being able to convey what the original intended to say. Nevertheless, I think the ability to translate one language to another is of great use and part of daily life already. It helps the world become more interconnected.

    Having translators is very important for the interaction between people of different language and I like that a requirement is having an understanding for the culture as well as the language because they need to be able to translate things that don’t always translate directly so they need to be able to do some interpretation with their translations.

    We need more people who are bilingual. We live in a very diverse nation. It is important to be able to communicate between each other. It is really easy to misunderstand words. I love that we live in a diverse nation. I would also love to speak more than two languages so I can be able to communicate with more people in an easier way.
