The world would not be the same without Professional Interpreters

The translation is an activity that dates back to ancient times. And this profession is the answer to a primary need of human beings: communication. Without having to attend a history class, it is known that professional interpreters have played an important role in the development of civilization.

Interpreters have been an important element in some events, from the times of conquest in the middle of the millennium to the peace treaties of the world wars.

When professional interpreters changed human history

Knowing, translating, and interpreting has been a necessary tool in the growth and development of human life. Keep reading and learn about three important moments in which the role of professional interpreters changed the course of history.

First World War

The diplomatic talks that took place at the beginning of the 20th century were really important for the end of the conflict, and this moment is known as the official beginning of the profession of interpreting. And even when we know that this activity is older, it is a relevant moment because in the conciliation rooms few people knew a different language than their native dialect.

And in the face of this problem, the interpreters were the solution!

In this and many other conciliation spaces, professional interpreters were of great help to the final agreements.

The arrival of International Organizations

With the opening of the Congress of Vienna in 1815 and then the arrival of the UN, the profession of interpreting and translation became almost a requirement to give meaning to these meetings.

Although many country representatives have the ability and knowledge to understand several languages at the same time, the growth of these international organizations and the birth of many others, has made professional interpreters a fundamental part of the organization.

And the most remarkable thing is that even when there are automated mechanisms for translation, at specific times the intervention of a professional who can interpret dynamically and accurately is fundamental.

Nuremberg Trials

Known as one of the crucial political events of the 20th century, the Nuremberg Trials are also one of the biggest milestones for consecutive and simultaneous interpreting.

And this is considered one of the most important moments for the translation profession because, to make it possible, a lot of professionalism, coordination, and accuracy in the interpretation process was necessary.
