Why would you need an interpreter in Tagalog?

Most Tagalog-speaking Filipinos speak English. English is the medium of instruction used in the public and private schools, colleges and universities in the Philippines. Philippine laws are codified in English. The criminal and civil courts of the Philippine justice system are courts of record and English is the main language used.

Although workplace conversations are mostly in Tagalog, formal business contracts, negotiations, procedures, and correspondence are in English. Even the Philippine entertainment industry is full of American movies and artists. However, in terms of expressing one's feelings, narrating first-hand account of events, and facility with a particular language, a Tagalog-speaking Filipino will fare better in his/her native tongue.

Also, better understanding, through an interpreter, between employers and Tagalog-speaking employees who are not fluent in English, leads to greater productivity, a safer and friendlier work environment
