Now designing an app for two sided market - for interpreters and their customers. So there would be two sections - for interpreters and for customers. I have stucked a little bit with the titles in the app bar.

I think title "Customer" doesn't suit well... it is dull and not informative. In other fields there are good and informative terms for opposite parties - doctor & patient, rider & driver, teacher & student, etc. And what could you suggest for my situation? Thanks.

BTW this is simply two sections of an app - first for Customers and second for Interpreters. Each of them have their own content.

    How about "Client"? And why did you put profile category as header title? What is the content of the page? If it is a profile page, why don't you use it as a subtitle, and his/her name as a header title? – Dolorosa Jan 26 '17 at 6:31
  • I agree with @Rosiana please use 'client' word – Jasmin Javia Jan 26 '17 at 6:48
  • Lets say I am a interpreter. Is this a page with all the clients I have? Is this a page of one of my Clients? Is this my actual profile as others see it? – Alvaro Jan 26 '17 at 10:20
  • @Alvaro: ... Or is it simply my page as an interpreter, because as an interpreter, I am also the OP's client? – O. R. Mapper Feb 1 '17 at 8:09
  • Yes, it is simply two sections of an app - first for Customers and second for Interpreters. Each of them have their own content. – Kirill Feb 2 '17 at 7:18

I suggest you use "User", "Client" or "Beneficiary". In the relationships "doctor & patient", "teacher & student" is implied a more profound element, an ethical one and here is just about a paid service.

As the app you are developing sounds like you are providing a service, why not "Service User?"

The NHS use it a lot as patient is starting to become a pejorative term.
