During interpretation, the conversion between the two languages depends on the skill and understanding of the interpreter. He has minimum or no access to a dictionary which is vital for the correct conversion. Moreover, the accuracy of the conversion depends on the experience of the interpreter which is an intangible metric, making the standardization process difficult.
