Your interpretation needs, handled with the accuracy and the professional quality you expect. The different services outlined below are offered either as stand-alone projects with one provider or in partnerships with other associates.

Interpretation involves facilitating oral communication among speakers who do not share the same source and target language.

Modes of Interpretation

In SIMULTANEOUS interpretation, the interpreter will render the target language as quickly as possible, in a sound-proof booth and/ or via transmitters and receivers to the audience. This is the preferred method for Conferences, Seminars, Congresses and Meetings.

In WHISPERED interpretation, the interpreter will sit next to the audience, while whispering a simultaneous interpretation. This mode generally requires no equipment and is generally used when a minority of the group does not speak the target language.

In CONSECUTIVE interpretation, the interpreter will speak after the source-language speaker has finished speaking. The interpreter takes notes and renders the subject into the target language when the speaker takes a break. This mode
is usual in rendering speeches, depositions, recorded statements, court witness testimony, and interviews.

In SIGHT translation, the interpreter must read aloud the source language document as if it were written in the target language. Sight translation occurs usually, but not exclusively, in judicial and medical work.
