I am a part time English oral interpreter. This is a challenging job that required mental and physical strength.
Firstly, during hours long conversations, I needed to pay extremely close attention to what they were talking about. Secondly, sometimes, I must spend one entire day to keep company with the foreign guests.
Recently, I accompanied some manure management experts from Holland to visit some Chinese companies in Beijing. For the entire day, I had to smell the manure of chickens and pigs while translating for those experts.
It is a tough job, isn’t it?
