The Life of a Professional Interpreter


When was the last time you cursed in front of a judge?

If you’re Pency Tsai, and your job is to be a full-time language interpreter, it probably happened more recently than one might think.

Pency was a guest on the Move the World with Words podcast recently, and talked to our team all about, among other things:

  • Life as a full-time interpreter.
  • Why she leaves in all the swear words, no matter who she’s talking to.
  • How she rests and recharges.
  • Why she thinks competition in the industry is overblown and damaging to the industry as a whole.
