    No, of course not. Translators work with  written text. If they do spoken text they are called interpreters.

    If you mean translation-software.. no. Google Translate for instance is often wrong or very wrong. Sometimes it translates to the opposite of what you mean. I use it as a dictionary when I don't have a paper one available, or when I get an email in a language I don't speak at all, just to get the gist

    I use translators at work (hospital). Some are there in person, others translate through an iPad. We see a lot of Russian, Somali, and Hmong patients.
