Language combination

Languages a particular interpreter works with. Languages are classified as “A”, “B” or “C”. A is interpreter’s native language. B is the interpreter’s foreign language he or she works from and into. C is the language the interpreter only works from. For example, English A, Spanish B, Russian C means that the interpreter works: Spanish and Russian into English, English into Spanish. Working from C into B usually brings bad results and is not done in professional conference interpretation.
