Rule 270

An Interpreter interprets. Regardless of the complexity or technical nature of the communication, an Interpreter interprets.  This is what makes an Interpreter an Interpreter and not a Signer. 

A Signer signs but is not an Interpreter. A Signer, no matter how fluent, who lacks the vocabulary, interest or energy to communicate a specific idea can just put their hands in their pockets and shut up; But an Interpreter interprets. As long as communication is needed an Interpreter interprets.

These blogs (I have two) began as a series of sayings I use to teach interpreting workshops, and political diatribes on Facebook. They moved from Facebook to this blog site: 1. as a way to remove them from my head (cuts down on the noise in there); and, 2. to give a better home to both my "less serious and satire laden posts" and my "more serious and satire laden posts." I guess it's up to you to decide which is which.
