Bilingualism does not guarantee fluency, or the ability to translate or interpret accurately.

• A translator, and an interpreter, is an individual who is bilingual/trilingual and fluent in those working languages, has a comprehensive, in-depth knowledge of language and linguistic nuances, terminology, style rules, a high degree of cultural awareness, received training in the art of translation or interpretation or both from an accredited institution, uses specific tools and translation memory, is up-to-date with the latest language and grammatical changes published by language authorities....
