What is the difference between Interpretation and Translation?

The terms, "translation" and "interpretation" are often used interchangeably although they have two separate meanings. You need to understand the difference to work with us.
Translation
is the written conversion of texts in the source language into texts written in the target language, retaining the meaning and intent of the original source text and producing a culturally competent product.
Interpretation
is the verbal conversion of the meaning of a dialogue from one language to another.
