Interpreting Services — Guaranteed Accuracy and Speed

Interpreting Services — Defined

Interpreting services are the provision of spoken or signed language communication by a professional interpreter to convey a message from the language of the original speaker or writer, into the language of the listener. This task requires the language interpreter to preserve the register (or tone) of the message, as well as the meaning behind that message.

Interpreting is an audible form of communication where at least one message in the communication is spoken. For example:

  • A conference interpreting service where the speaker’s message is simultaneously interpreted into sign language. (1 spoken, 1 visual)
  • A medical interpreting service involving a patient in an American hospital who doesn’t speak English. The interpreter relays the patient’s needs to the doctor, and the doctor’s diagnosis to the patient. (2 spoken)
  • A document sight interpreting service where an English woman finds a family letter written in Italian and wants to know what it says. The interpreter reads the letter aloud in English. (1 visual, 1 spoken)

For an interpreting service to occur, the interpreter can be in person, over the phone, or on a video chat to relay the message. As long as the interpreter can hear the message clearly, has a solid understanding of the subject matter, and is fluent in both the source and target languages, a clear and accurate interpretation ensues.

Phone Interpreting Services

Imagine these scenarios:

  • You’re in the middle of a busy shift in the ward. It’s late at night and suddenly a patient bursts in, surrounded by shouting family members, none of whom speak any English.
  • You are the head council of an international case, and you’ve found a key witness that your client swears will win the case… but you can’t understand a word that she says.
  • You are lost in a foreign country, and standard computer translations are not helping you communicate with the people helping you with directions.

What do you do? You never know when a situation will arise where interpretation services are needed immediately.

Phone interpreting services, best conducted with consecutive interpreting, offer ease in communication between parties who do not speak or understand one another.

Phone interpreting services can be conducted for two or more parties that are in the same room with one another, or in remote locations. It simply requires that one party secures a professional interpreter on a call, then adds additional parties on the line, or places the phone on speaker so that everyone in the room may be involved in the conversation.

You don’t always know who will walk through your doors, or when. So, we offer professional over the phone interpreting services 24/7 in all languages.

Simultaneous Interpreting

The interpreter renders a message into the target-language as the speaker delivers the message, with no pauses in between.

Consecutive Interpreting

The speaker delivers a message, pausing every few sentences to allow the interpreter to repeat the message into the target-language.

Sight Translation

The interpreter provides an oral rendition of written text into a language different than the original text.

Whispered

The interpreter sits next to the listener and conducts simultaneous interpreting in a lowered voice, to not distract or interrupt the speaker.

Relay

Involving multiple interpreters, one interpreter conveys the original message into a common language. Another interpreter renders the message from the common language into the target language.

Liaison

The interpreter acts as a mediator between two parties, interpreting every sentence spoken by both parties during the mediation.

Interpretation Services vs. Translation Services

This is how interpreting services differ from translation services:

Interpreting Service
  • An interpreter works with spoken language.
  • Interpreters must be quick to provide accurate interpretation services.
  • An interpreter must be able to speak back and forth in both languages, but not necessarily write well in either.
Translation Service
  • A translator works with written language.
  • A translator has time to review and make changes to assure accuracy.
  • A translator must be able to write well in both languages, but is not always bilingual.

No matter which service, each linguist must have a strong understanding of the subject matter in order to create the most accurate interpretation or translation. If you want 100% accurate translation or interpretation services, access one of our 10,000 professional, specialized linguists.
