Some folks fail to understand that, in most cases, interpreting tongues is an "interpretation", it's not a "translation". I've had my tongues interpreted and I've interpreted tongues. The best way to describe it will be best understood by parents. Many times a baby will cry. The cry makes no linguistic sense. However, it's not uncommon for a mommy or daddy to understand that the cry means that the baby is hungry, wants held, is uncomfortable, scared, etc. Many who don't have children often wonder, "How'd you guys know what the babby needed?" It's all in the "interpretation" of the cry. The "feeling" or the "vibe" that it brings to one who knows the baby. Same with tongues. When one speaks to the congregation in tongues one with the gift of interpretation can "sense" the meaning of the tongues. They will then use their limited human vocabulary to convey the message they are hearing in their spirit through the Holy Ghost. Therefore, "la la la" might only take two seconds... but the "interpretation" of what the Spirit of God is saying in that two seconds might take 5 minutes to interpret. Just like a baby crying "wa waaaa waaaaaa wa waaaaa" can be interpreted by a sensitive parent who knows the child as meaning, "I'm hungry. Please feed me." or "I'm wet. Please change me." or "Please hold me." or "I'm uncomfortable."

It takes deep spiritual maturity and emotion to interpret tongues. Those gifted with interpretation often pray to God repenting as to if they missed what God was trying to say, or worded it incorrectly in any way. If one isn't in tune with the Spirit... or unfocused, they can be significantly off.

It's "interpretation" not "translation".

I do not have children, but I have two cats and was raised around dogs. Many times I 'know' what has been 'said' by them. However, I believe that most of the time one must be well acquainted with the animal in order to reach that level. The same would apply to the Spirit. One must know the Lord in order to speak the words that He gives.

For interpretation of tongues, not everyone has the same 'method'. Many times I will have been receiving a message from God in advance. Other times it comes suddenly. When I been used for the interpretation, it is much like speaking in tongues in that there is only complete surrender to the Spirit. Others have it given to them in other ways.

I am often praying before and after that I do not make a mistake. I have felt it on occasion, and once I last the flow of the Spirit at the end of the message. I spent time in prayer asking God to not allow that to happen again. However, we must always remember that we are merely the clay vessels on the Potter's Wheel.

That I would have to hear! (Not entirely sure it can be done, but I would like to see anyway.)
