Interpreting Services

Ad-hoc/liaison

The interpreting is carried out in small, informal situations such as solicitors’ appointments or group discussions. (The term is not to be confused with its use in medical circles, where it refers to untrained individuals such as family or friends who interpret to bridge a communicative gap between the patient and staff).

Consecutive

The interpreting occurs after sentences or short bursts of speech, and is commonly used in more formal situations such as court proceedings, small conferences, factory visits, and business meetings.

Simultaneous

The source voice is interpreted with a 2-3 second delay, requiring soundproof booths, microphones, and several specifically-qualified linguists to simultaneously listen, interpret, and relay the message to delegates’ headsets. It is often used for large multinational meetings, summits, and conferences.

Telephone

Not all interpreting requirements can be foreseen and some do not need an interpreter on-site. Our on-demand telephone interpreting services are available 24-7 to connect you to a linguist within minutes, ideal for example when ordering from overseas suppliers or negotiating with clients via conference call.

Chuchotage/whispered interpreting

The interpreter sits amongst delegates and relays the interpretation by whisper, delivering a much quicker service than consecutive interpreting. This variation is best suited to smaller audiences where a handful of attendees do not understand the source language.
