Whether your meeting is national or international, formal or informal, it is unlikely to achieve the best results if there are language barriers.
We are highly experienced at facilitating such meetings, and can provide a sensitive, precise and diplomatic interpreting service.
We work only with qualified and trained interpreters.
They must be able to think and react very quickly and to deliver the speaker's message with the right expressions, emphasis and accuracy.
Interpretation - a verbal conversion of speech to another language is our primary specialization. We offer a full range of interpretation services including:
This is the most efficient mode of interpretation and, contrary to the popular belief, it is also the least expensive one. Your message is being conveyed in real-time, preserving continuous flow of information and saving time by not needing to pause for interpretation after a few sentences. If you're thinking about a conference or a seminar, - simultaneous interpretation is the most logical choice. Simultaneous interpreters normally work in teams of two, switching between them every half hour or so.
Simultaneous interpreting generally requires special equipment such as microphones, headsets, and, ideally booths. If you don't have an equipped booth or your own equipment, we can provide you with our portable equipment for meetings with up to 10 participants. More substantial systems, able to accommodate large events, are available for rent.
This format is more applicable in meetings with a smaller number of participants, business negotiations. trade show tours, etc. The speaker is expected to stop after every two or three sentences letting interpreter translate his words. In our experience, few speakers remember to stop often enough, which is why this work requires constant intense concentration of interpreter's memory as well as good shorthand skills. Such assignments are also best performed by a team of two (not least because few people can manage the physical strain of speaking all day long). Yet for less intense conversations or incomplete workdays a single interpreter can be assigned.
Escort interpreters work alone and generally translate informal conversations as well as performing all around facilitator support by helping foreign visitors at airports, restaurants, hotel check-ins, accompanying them at city tours and shopping trips, etc.
