I am working as a translator/interpreter for an organization.
Both "translator" and "interpreter" have the same noc code (5125) but they have different responsibilities and duties
In my work i used to work sometimes as a translator (paperwork) and sometimes as an interpreter.
My question is, can i mention i work as a "translator/interpreter" in my work history ? or I have to choose ONLY ONE of them and omit the other?

You can choose either or choose one which has more bearing on your job role, in the sense chose one where you can show 80% of the duties in you reference letter
