Interpreting is the best way to make your foreign customers feel comfortable

Interpreter services

Technical Translation Ltd can supply interpreters - simultaneous or consecutive, by the half-day or full day, for business meetings, conferences, international shows and fairs, contract signing, visits to factories and companies, negotiations, seminars, technical training, etc. . With a good interpreter, you can complete  your business with foreign visitors quickly, easily and precisely, with no language barrier.

We can supply interpreters for many different languages, a list of which is shown at the bottom of this page.

Simultaneous Interpreting

Two or three interpreters per language are needed for conferences or lectures where interpreters use cabins for simultaneous interpreting. The interpreter uses a microphone and his or her speech is relayed to the attendees via headphones. Each interpreter works for about 20 minutes at a time in his or her booth (one booth per language) and then hands over to one of the other two interpreters.

This system is necessary for correct simultaneous interpreting, since after 20 minutes of simultaneous interpreting, the interpreter's mental faculties have reached the stopping point. This is because a simultaneous interpreter has to speak in one language, while hearing in another language.

Consecutive Interpreting

Consecutive interpreting, where the interpreter translates what one person says into the language of the other person, and then translates what that person says in reply, needs only one interpreter - these interpreters can often interpret between three or more languages where necessary and this is very useful at shows and fairs.

Although interpreters can often work in widely different technical or business fields, we nevertheless recommend that some of your documents are sent to the interpreter in advance so as to prepare him or her for the work. The interpreter will then know the vocabulary of the products or services involved and will be able to provide the high class interpreting that you deserve.

Logistical support can also be provided by Technical Translation Ltd for simultaneous conferences (rental and installation of interpreting equipment, headphones, microphones, etc), installed by a team of specialized technicians.
