We offer the following types of interpreting:

Conference interpreting

Conference interpreting deals exclusively with oral communication: rendering a message from one language into another, naturally and fluently, adopting the delivery, tone and convictions of the speaker and speaking in the first person. Our professional and highly qualified interpreters will assist you successfully to hold seminars, symposiums, workshops and other various meetings. Two of the most common methods for conference interpreting are consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting. Below you will find more detailed information on each type of interpreting service. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the most suitable type of interpretation for your event.

Consecutive Interpreting

The interpreter listens to a section of the speech delivered in source language. The interpreter is at the podium alongside the speaker. The speaker pauses every few minutes to allow the interpreter to relay the information in the target language (which means that a 2-minute speech needs approximately another two minutes for interpretation). No technical equipment is required. Consecutive interpreting is most frequently used at:

  • Business meetings;
  • Small seminars and training sessions;
  • Negotiations;
  • Tours and visits for small groups. 

Simultaneous Interpreting

The interpreter works in a soundproofed booth with at least one colleague. The speaker in the meeting room speaks into a microphone, the interpreter receives the sound through a headset and renders the message into a microphone almost simultaneously.  Simultaneous interpreting requires intense concentration so interpreters normally work in pairs, alternating every 15-20 minutes. Simultaneous interpreting requires special equipment, such as set of headphones, receivers and a soundproof booth. The advantage of simultaneous interpreting is that it saves time, as there are no pauses or interruptions. Simultaneous interpreting is most frequently used at:

  • Major events involving a large international audience;
  • Events on a tight agenda where time is a critical factor;
  • Tours and site visits for large groups.

Tips for speakers

  • Speak naturally, at a reasonable pace
  • Speaking is better than reading
  • Make sure the interpreters have the text if you read a speech
  • Talk with your interpreters and give them feedback
  • Put figures, names and acronyms clearly
