Hi there

Has anyone ever interpreted for Customs? What is the most difficulty situation an interpreter might encounter? How to prepare to complete the assignment professionally?

Thanks for your help!

is it about stowaways, immigration, contraband, sex-tourism, etc. ?
Each case is particular, but from the standpoint of the interpreter, there is no much difference from court interpreting.
