  • Interpretation Services

    Never impose your language on people you wish to reach.

    Simultaneous Conference Interpreting

    International conferences, multicultural and crossborder project meetings, international management board sessions, global sales presentations, stakeholders' meetings, high-level formal meetings and a series of international events need simultaneous interpreting. Conference interpreting is performed on the spot, the interpreters work in pair of two and they interpret what the speaker is saying while they are saying it, allowing multi-lingual conferences to flow as smoothly and quickly as if they were in a single language. We're interpreting experts and happy to see the audience laughing at your jokes as if they understand the language you speak.

    Consecutive Interpreting

    You'll need consecutive interpreting service when presenting a product, introducing new service or at press conferences and short presentations in venues where technical equipment is not available. The interpreter has to listen to the discourse, or a fragment of it, and then interpret it into the target language after the speaker has finished. In order to handle large amounts of information at a time note-taking technique is essential as well as a lot of memory effort and the ability to make logical judgments regarding the speech. We're trained to deal with this.


    Whispered Interpreting

    Formal receptions, high-level meetings and dinners and all the occasions when there are only one or maximum three recipients. It is a form of simultaneous interpretation, that is done in a low voice, directly into the recipient’s ear. For this type of interpretation, the interpreter sits next to, or slightly behind, the recipient whilst whispering an interpretation of the original speech. This mode is usually only used when the use of technology is not possible due to the situation in which the interpretation is being conducted. We silently blend into the event and invisibly help to convey the message. Ssshhh.

    Liaison Interpreting

    You'll need liaison interpreting service at your B2B meetings, exhibitions, business meetings and on one-on-one meetings and negotiations. Liaison interpretation is used to facilitate understanding between two parties that speak different languages, which could be two people, an individual and a small group, or two small groups. The interpreter shares the same space as the parties involved and needs to have a perfect command of both languages to guarantee an effective communicative process.

    So, when is your next meeting?


    Medical Interpreting

    Medical interpreters work with patients in hospitals, physician's offices, clinics, during clinical trials, rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes and mental health clinics. We act as conduits between patients and medical professionals by listening to the professional and orally translating information into a patient's native language in layman's terms. The medical interpreter then translates the patient's response back to the professional, using proper medical terminology.

    During the visit, cultural misunderstandings between a professional and patient may occur. We are here to anticipate these events and try to avoid them. Interpreters also are privy to sensitive information, so they must maintain patient confidentiality at all times.
