Building bridges between continents and cultures

Translation, when practiced by relatively bilingual individuals but especially when by persons with limited proficiency in one or both languages, involves a risk of spilling-over of idioms and usages from the source language into the target language.
On the other hand, inter-linguistic spillages have also served the useful purpose of importing claques and loanwords from a source language into a target language that had previously lacked a concept or a convenient expression for the concept.

Translators and interpreters have thus played an important role in the evolution of languages and cultures.
