Language interpreters perform tasks that are similar to language translators. However, they are not writers and are employed only to do oral interpretation of language. They are important in helping people who do not speak the same language understand each other as they speak. Language interpreters may be simultaneous interpreters who interpret language as the person speaks or consecutive interpreters who say their interpretation after the speaker has finished his piece. Language interpreters must be familiar of the field they are interpreting for and must be aware of the objective of the activity or conversation to be able to contextualize what the speakers are saying.
