In Conference Interpretation the interpreter sits in a booth, listening through headphones to the speech in the source language and interpretation is done over a microphone to the target audience.
The conference interpreter has to ensure the interpretation is flawless and the message is conveyed accurately. This is the reason our simultaneous interpreters and translators are not academically sound, but we make sure they are appointed to events matching their credentials and subject matter.
Consecutive interpreters use a different process. They are required to listen to a consecutive speech in the source language for few minutes and then interprets all the contents in the target language and accurately.
Interpretation is done by Interpreters possessing high proficiency in linguistics of the given language combination and having technical knowledge in the field specified by the client.
Interpreters can travel to the location required in case of outstation assignments or we can arrange for professional interpreters residing in the city / country where the interpretation services are required.
Consecutive interpreting involves the speaker talking for a short period of time and the interpreter then translating this into the required foreign language, allowing the speech to flow more fluently. This type of interpreting service is used by legal professionals, and it is also a common technique used in small conferences or group discussions.
