What We do
We offer Consecutive, Simultaneous and Sight Interpretation. Also, we can help you with the translation of documents and videos.
During consecutive interpretation, the professional interpreter transmits the message after the speaker pauses. The time needed for a meeting with consecutive interpretation is much longer. It is very important for the interpreter to follow the interpretation protocols in case of doubt, to takes notes while listening to both parties, and to sit between the client and the provider without blocking the eye contact between them.
A good interpreter becomes invisible in a meeting and helps to develop a relationship between both clients.
The Simultaneous interpretation is the type of interpretation when the interpreter listens while also interprets the message into the second language. This kind of interpretation requires practice and a deep knowledge in the area that is being interpreted. This kind of interpretation allows the natural flow of the message.
Sight translation refers to the process of reading a document or piece of writing in the original language and translating it out loud in the target language. It is an option for business or other professionals to receive or convey the meaning of certain writings on a short notice.
