Interpreting Services: Over the Phone, Consecutive and Simultaneous
We can provide interpreting services for business conferences, court and legal proceedings, medical, over the phone, sign language, or for any other situation which may arise. Professional Translations provides two different types of interpreting services you can choose from to best suit your needs - Consecutive interpreting and Simultaneous interpreting.
Types of Interpreting
Consecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpretation and is the easiest service to arrange. In consecutive interpretation, the interpreter speaks after the source-language speaker has finished speaking; the speech may be divided into sections.
Simultaneous interpreting takes a bit more setting up and is ideal for situations where there are people present who speak many different languages. In such situations, the interpretation occurs while the source language speaker speaks, as quickly as the interpreter can formulate the spoken message to the target language. Simultaneous interpretation is used in various situations such as business conferences, graduation ceremonies, or in any situation where there are no pauses between speakers allowing time for the interpreter to relay information to the interpreter. For example, at international conferences and at the UN, simultaneous interpretation is effected while the interpreter sits in a sound-proof booth and speaks into a microphone while listening with earphones to the source speaker, usually with a clear view of him or her. The interpreter then relays the message in the target language into the microphone to the target language listeners who wear headsets so they can hear the interpretation occur simultaneously.. Simultaneous interpreting is also the most common mode used by sign language interpreters, as there is no audible language interference while both languages are being expressed simultaneously.
Phone interpreting is our most commonly requested service. If you need to communicate with a non-English speaker, telephone interpreting is a simple way to instantly communicate. As one of the world's leading providers of telephone interpreting, Professional Translations offers a very simple to use and extremely effective service.
All of our interpreters are highly qualified and rigorously screened so that you can be sure we provide only the highest quality and accurate interpreting services available. We have specialists that interpret in many fields to ensure that your interpretation is not only fast, but accurate in specialized vocabulary and terminology. We only accept skilled, educated native speakers, and we've implemented a strict screening and training process to ensure accuracy for our clients. Furthermore, our Interpreters are bound by confidentiality agreements to guarantee privacy and confidentiality.
