What is the difference between 'interprétariat' and 'traduction'?

I'm trying say that I work as a translator and those two words are ing with me. I know traducteur is a 'translator' but in which context can I use 'interprétariat'?

As far as I know "translator" refers to written language, texts, books etc. while "interpreter" to oral language, spoken meetings, consecutive, simultaneous etc.

^ what they said.

Translation is written and interpretation is oral.

Looks like interprétariat is the function for interpreting, like a secretariat is an administrative function / group.

e.g. https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/aoz/de/...ephonique.html

Not sure what you'd define it as - maybe a collective noun, a group of traducteurs interprètes is an interprétariat.

Live interpretation is not the same at all than translating a written document. The required skills are very different. I do both, albeit not as a fully trained professional, and it’s reall not the same job.
