Translator and Interpreter Expertise and Specializations Lists

The list of areas of expertise and specializations is big and each genre has its own sub-genres and those sub-genres and so on.  

The professional translator and interpreter take into account their education, experience, and knowledge to focus their services in certain areas of expertise and specializations.  


For instance, in school they may have studied legal court proceedings, have experience working with lawyers and knowledge of the legal system, so they decide to work in criminal, family, and immigration law. 

The professional must know, memorize and use specialized vocabulary in at least two languages.  This is very difficult because the majority of the terms are not used in the everyday vocabulary. 

Below are semi-complete lists of areas of specializations and expertise for translators and interpreters.
