As well as written translation, we help clients with their interpreting needs, offering both simultaneous and consecutive interpreting services.
Simultaneous interpreting is a highly-skilled, complex process, in which an interpreter must choose the correct words to immediately translate a spoken message. Working in teams of two for each language pair, simultaneous interpreters listen to the speaker and, at the same time, provide an interpretation of what has just been said, continuing with this process until the speaker has finished.
We work with a variety of clients to provide on-site support and can work to very tight deadlines. All of our interpreters are expected to have advanced interpretation qualifications, as well as industry-specific knowledge and a minimum of five years’ experience.
For a meeting or conference involving 10 or more delegates, equipment such as soundproof booths and whisper microphones would be required. We can provide a qualified, on-site technician during your event, along with state-of-the-art equipment. We also have a lot of experience in providing simultaneous interpreting for business meetings, conferences, training seminars, court hearings, site tours and trade shows.
Consecutive interpreting means that an interpreter relays a complete message after the speaker has finished talking. When delivering the message the interpreter is the only person speaking to the target audience in the chosen language.
Typically this service is best suited to small meetings, such as legal proceedings or business presentations. As with our simultaneous interpreting service, we expect all our interpreters to have advanced interpretation qualifications, as well as industry-specific knowledge and a minimum of five years’ experience.
