Home | Interpreting & Translation | Interpreting
Interpreting services deal with spoken words, acting as a bridge to convey a message from one language to another.
Interpreters have a set of very specific abilities that allow them to communicate the message accurately: proficient in more than one language, have attention to detail, are reliable, work well under pressure and stress, are focused and have experience in their field.
Our interpreters will get your message across in an accurate, smooth and efficient manner.
We offer on-site and telephonic Interpreting in its different types and variety of fields:
Simultaneous. The interpreter relays the message almost immediately to the listener, lagging a few words or seconds behind the speaker. Mostly used in conferences, large meetings, court proceedings.
Consecutive. The interpretation is rendered after the speaker has finished or at appropriate breaks during the speech. Used in conference calls, presentations, conference calls, medical appointments, school meetings.
Whispering (chuchotage.) Used when interpreting to one person or a small group of people.
Medical interpreters provide language services to non-English speaking or Limited English Proficient patients to help them communicate with doctors, nurses and other medical staff.
