Legal translators: Legal Translators translate legal documents like laws, foreign court orders, and treaties of the U. S. State Department. They also perform the task of correctly translating even doubtful or unclear statements.

Technical translators: Translators who are specialized in the scientific and technical field will translate scientific and technical documents. It is very essential to have some knowledge regarding the field which is the subject of translation.

Literary translators: Literary translators will translate literature between different languages. They will translate books, journal articles, short stories, and poetry. In acquaintance with creative writing, this type of translation needs adequately rewriting the content of work in a particular language. In order to perform this, translators sometimes work with the original authors to create the most appropriate content translation. Mostly, university education professors are the common persons in this discipline, even though there are some highly-reputed literary translators. Literary translators will undertake publishing by submitting work illustrations which are approved by the author to publishing companies.

Localization translators: Localization translators entirely convert a product into a different culture and language. It can be software, Internet, or manufacturing products. Localization translators must have a strong realization of the concerning language, technical terminology, and the audience which will obtain the product.
