Communication is life. Without communication, no civilization can exist or survive. With the development of civilizations, different languages with different dialects flourished as a means of communication among people. Today we have hundreds of languages with different dialects both recognized and otherwise world over. Some of the more known languages like English (American and UK), French, Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Hindi, Arabic, Russian, Japanese etc.,
Today no nation can be independent and self sufficient. It has to depend upon other countries for something or other and import from then. If the languages of the countries involved in this excursive are different, they sound strange to each other and are difficult to understand. If with only two countries with different languages face this problem, think of the different languages of different countries and how to deal with them? Unless these language barriers are broken, no country can develop and its citizens will suffer.
Thus we need a person who can translate the communication into the other language and convey the message. Though many people world over speak more than one language, no person is fluent with all the languages of the world. Today we see people talking fluently in more than one language.
To make our lives comfortable and countries flourish, we have a community called translators. They interpret/translate the languages for us. Like English-French, English-Russian, Russian-French, French-German, German-English, French-Mandarin Chinese, Hindi-German, Russian-Arabic, Arabic-English and the list goes on.
But what is important in translating/interpreting a language, is the core essence and meaning of the message to be communicated in another language. We have professional translators who are fluent in their languages and can convey the exact feelings of one party to the other. Any wrong/faulty translation may hurt the feeling of the other party and jeopardize the relations without the knowledge of the translator.
