When selecting an interpreter for a meeting with foreign clients; to begin with, we must consider the related work experience of the interpreter. Interpretation is a skilled job which calls for a great deal of practice. A good interpreter must have accumulated plenty of experience and known how to respond quickly under different circumstances.
Reliability is another important factor when choosing an ideal interpreter because he is the bridge connecting the two sides. A good business outcome depends on his accurate and fluent interpretation. Meanwhile, his personal integrity of occupation shouldn’t be overlooked because he grasps some business secrets and has the chance to touch the core technology.
In addition, the personality of an interpreter should also be taken into consideration when selecting one for a meeting with foreign clients. Good personality will smooth the communication and encourage the interaction of the both sides. To some extent, a good interpreter will affect the result of business consultation.
