After spending Saturday with two 4 year olds and two one year olds, I often felt like I needed some interpreter services. Trying to figure out what the one year olds were trying to tell us was like pulling teeth. Unfortunately, there is no such thing for toddlers. However, on a more serious note, this would actually be a pretty cool profession. My two years of Spanish in high school wouldn't cut it in this line of work (since at this point, I think Madison knows more Spanish than I do from watching Dora and Diego!). However, my sister has a friend who is fluent in Spanish who would be great as a transaltor. Her husband is from Guatamola, and when he doesn't understand what we are saying, she translates for him. I didn't realize it, but there is all different kinds of translators too. There is medical, legal, telephone, technical — just to name a few. I didn't realize there was so much you could do with this professional. I should have studied a little harder in high school.
