Interpreter Ahn Hyun Mo says President Trump is the hardest person to translate

Interpreter Ahn Hyun Monamed President Donald Trumpas the most difficult person to translate.

On July 5, Ahn Hyun Mo, Park Kyung Lim, Jessi, and Kim Ji Hyeguested on KBS' 'Happy Together 3'.

Ahn Hyun Mo, who went viral for her smooth translation of grand events such as the '2018 Billboard Music Awards', the US-North Korea summit, and more, was given various questions about her translation experience.


One question asked if it was difficult for her to translate the American pop stars' slangs at 'BBMA'. Ahn Hyun Mo answered, "I didn't have many difficulties during 'BBMA'. I actually had a hard time during the US-North Korea summit."

She explained, "I translated Trump multiple times. He uses the same vocabulary over and over again." She named the phrases "great" and "a lot of" as examples. Ahn Hyun Mo continued, "If the interpreter translates that directly then he will sound like an elementary kid. So I try to vary the words, like 'fabulous', 'good', 'fantastic' (for each time he says 'great')."
