Below, in white font to the left: Many people enter into the field of interpreting through ITPs varying in duration, curriculum, and quality. Oftentimes students complete their ITP with a newfound understanding of language, ethics, culture, and interpreting. However, a great majority of those students complete their ITPs with little to no knowledge of the business journey on which they are about to embark. This lack of a basic fundamental understanding of the business side of interpreting negatively impacts both the individual and the profession at large. Unfortunately, many interpreters learn the hard way. Being that the actions of a few can affect the many, it is imperative to establish a solid foundation from the beginning which would, as a result, build the business acumen of our interpreter counterparts.
