Professional Language Interpretation Services

An interpreter works with the spoken word.

Interpreters convey the meaning faithfully, accurately and impartially from one language into another.
A successful interpretation is one in which the target language fully and accurately reflects the style, register and cultural content of the source language, without additions, omissions and embellishments. [1]

Similarly to translation, there are different types of interpretations:
  • In-Person/On-Site (whisper/booth)
  • Via Video/Online
  • Via Telephone
There are three types of interpretation modes.  All three modes are highly complex.

Consecutive Interpreting

Consecutive interpreting is when the speaker talks clearly and pauses every phrase or so to give the interpreter time to render the interpretation.  The interpreter listens to a segment of speech, the speaker stops to allow the interpreter to speak, and so on.   Interpreters sometimes take short notes to help recall key words or numbers.

Simultaneous Interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting is interpreting at the same time others are speaking.  This is an extremely complex mental task, requiring concentration far beyond what most people usually experience.  Just to give you an idea of the difficulty, interpreting has been compared to working as an air traffic controller.

Sight Translation

Sight Translation is when the interpreter gives the rendering of a source text directly into a target language for informational purposes, not for a translation.
