Professional interprreters

Interpreting goes beyond words. When it comes to pitching your product overseas, explaining your services to limited English proficient clients or even communicating within the same multinational company, interpreting services are essential. Professional interpreters become an extension of your business. Professional interpreters are talented linguists with an understanding of how business works and what is needed to promote a clear communication between parties. They also bring with them an insight into the cultural nuances of a particular country/culture and can act as a liaison to help overcome potential cross cultural obstacles.


Assessing the need for an interpreter

Engaging an interpreter is recommended when the client: a. Requests it, b. Speaks English as a second language and is in a stressful, complex or unfamiliar situation, c. Is difficult to understand d. Responds only in a limited way e. Relies on family or friends to interpret, f. Wishes to communicate in his or her preferred language, g. Cannot grasp or respond to questions in English. Remember, an interpreter serves not only the client. To determine a client’s level of English language proficiency, ask open-ended questions that require more than a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.



Simultaneous Translation/Interpreting is when the source-language speaker speaks continuously, while the translator sits in a sound-proof booth or uses mobile translation equipment and translates the message through a microphone, simultaneously, in the target language. Because of the fast-paced and exacting nature of this type of translation, two translators are typically involved, working in 20-minute increments.

Ideial for meetings, workshops, trainings and audits.
Benefits: real-time communication and no interruption.
