Translation is not simply translating one language into another. Although some simple texts can be translated like regular text, others are more complex. For example, the difficulty of translating a death certificate is not the same as translating a medical report or a novel.
Expert translators deliver the best quality products faster than amateur translators, because expert translators are more productive! As such, amateur translators need to study what expert translators are doing. You can understand that translation is a deep understanding of professional issues.
Words of Charles Martin
In his article “Specialist Translation”, Charles Martin said that:
"Everyone in the translation industry seems to agree that today's translators need expertise. (…) [One of the reasons is] the exponential expansion of knowledge. It is more understanding of any particular major and some new majors. No translator will have enough knowledge to translate all types of documents well in a given time period."

Influence of the Internet on Specialized Translation
As quoted by Charles Martin:
"The Internet is the second main reason why specialized translation is becoming increasingly necessary. First, by helping translators deliver translations quickly to clients anywhere in the world and promoting exceptional skills and services far beyond the domestic market, the international website has make it easier for specialized translators to translate.
Second, by leaving a wealth of information at their disposal, they can venture into new and more professional fields. However, the Internet is increasingly competitive, helping those who have documents to translate will find someone who can meet their needs or prices."
