Which Interpreting Service Do You Need?
We provide three types of interpreting services: consecutive, escort, and over-the-phone interpreting (OPI).
Face to face Interpreting
Face to face interpreting is the most widely used type of on-site interpreting services, and is most appropriate in smaller settings, such as training workshops, negotiations, and technical seminars. During this interpreting service, the speaker will speak for a few minutes (a few paragraphs), then pause. The interpreter takes notes and then translates the speaker’s message during the pause. The key element in consecutive interpreting is note-taking: the interpreter must record ideas and then translate them back into the words of another language without pause.
Another form of consecutive interpreting is often called escort interpreting. If you are hosting a delegation of visitors from another country, you may want to use the services of an escort interpreter for meeting clients at the airport, city tours, and shopping excursions. Escort interpreters generally translate informal conversations.
Telephone interpreting allows our customers to hear the voice of the interpreter.
