High-quality interpreting services for every situation
Interpreting according to your needs
Interpreting is spoken communication in which speech is fluently and accurately translated from one language to another. The interpreter has a strong command of the culture in their language region and promotes interaction between people who speak different languages. Interpreting is needed in many conferences, meetings, corporate visits and negotiations in which people who do not share a language want to understand each other. Professional interpreters make this possible.
Interpreting also supports the work of various public officials, including the police, border control, the legal system as well as the education, social services and healthcare sectors. In the interpreting setting the interpreter is always impartial, and bound by confidentiality.
Types of interpreting – situations in which interpreting is needed
Modes of interpreting – how the interpreting is carried out
In consecutive interpreting the speaker and interpreter speak in turn, and the interpreting takes place after each period of speech.
In simultaneous interpreting the speaker and interpreter speak at the same time. Simultaneous interpreting is conducted via specialised equipment in a sound-proofed interpreting booth. The interpreter hears the speech through headphones which are connected to the speaker’s microphone, and the audience can hear the interpreting via their headphones. Simultaneous interpreting is the most common mode for sign language interpreting.
In whispered interpreting simultaneous interpreting is provided to a small group either through portable devices or without any equipment. If no equipment is used, the number of listeners may be between one and three.
