Our priority is the learner. Always.

Our mission is to provide comparisons and recommendations for foreign language learners, so they do not waste any unncessary time on poor learning products and overpriced solutions.

So, how do we make money? Our partners compensate us, at no additional cost to the learner. This can influence the positioning of certain elements on Actual Fluency, but it never influences our recommendations, and reviews which are based on years of experience in the field. We do not accept payment in exchange for favourable reviews, or paid link placements. Here is a list of our partners.

AFP 25 – Robert Bigler: Translation and Interpretation

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

Hello guys! It's Friday, which means another Actual Fluency Podcast. We're up to episode 25! Which is a happy quarter century.

Today on the show we have a very talented polyglot, Mr. Robert Bigler. Robert is an Austrian professional interpreter and translator and I caught up with him in Berlin to discuss what it's like to work professionally with languages. Lots of tips and tricks if you aspire to get into translation or interpretation.
