Duties and Responsibilities
The nation's defense depends on information from foreign language newspapers, magazines, radio broadcasts and other sources. Therefore, it's very important that some members of the Army be able to read and understand the many languages of the world. Nowhere is this more important than in the Middle Eastern countries of Iraq and Afghanistan. Currently the Army needs Middle-Eastern language speaking individuals to serve as Interpreter/Translators and help with the rebuilding efforts. The Interpreter/Translator is primarily responsible for converting written or spoken foreign languages into English, and they specialize in a number of Middle-Eastern languages. Some of your duties as an Interpreter/Translator may include: * Preparing non-technical translations into the target language and performing sight translations from a target language into English * Perform oral interpretation functions. * Assisting a military contracting officer with a local purchase to providing interpretation support at a military traffic control point. * You may even be required to assist security personnel in screening the local population at military checkpoints. * Other duties may include providing interpretation assistance for the Public Affairs Office (PAO) during local media events and translation of local newspapers or pamphlets. Been on overseas.
Been Discharged from the Military Since 2008.
