Interpretation or interpreting?
The word “interpretation” is defined by the online version of the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “the act or the result of interpreting”, giving it the same dynamic as the verb – its meaning is active, it represents a process and we see it used in various combinations when it refers to live translation services.
The answer is in the meaning
The word “interpreter” is defined by the same source as both “one who translates orally for parties conversing in different languages” and “one who explains or expounds”, which actually defines our profession, that of interpreter-translator, as we don’t only make a language switch when we convey the messages of the speaker to their audience, but we also convey meaning, nuance, tone of voice.
“To translate” means, in short, to turn the words of an utterance into an identical utterance in another language. In the process of translation we respect the correct word order of the language into which we are translating. We do not add anything extra. We leave nothing out.
But “interpreting” adds meaning and fits much better with what we do.
So when we interpret, we do not only translate what the speaker says, but we also give the translation the meaning of the message the speaker wants to convey. We interpret. We act the role of the speaker themselves. We convey the tone, inflections of voice and other features of the speaker’s speech.
