Interpreting Services

Our interpreting services are second to none, highly qualified interpreters who are available around the clock and around the globe. Quality is key.

Interpreters work with spoken words as opposed to written words, in a particular setting, from one language combination to another. This is unlike translation which deals purely with written texts. Like translation, it is an art in itself. Interpreting requiring high levels of concentration, strong subject knowledge and optimum oral fluency, it is an intense profession.

At Lingua Translations we work with over 5000 linguists worldwide so we have a wide choice of interpreters to choose from. Each one is thoroughly vetted and cleared for security purposes. To give you an idea, around 90% of linguists who apply to us are unsuccessful as they just aren’t good enough!

Types of Interpreting Services:

There are different forms of interpreting depending on the situation these are listed below and described in further detail:

Simultaneous Interpreting

This mode of interpreting is ideal for conferences, seminars and congresses. The speech is relayed to the event attendees in real time and the interpreter works from an acoustically isolated booth, receiving the speech through a headset. Read More »

Whispered Simultaneous Interpreting (a.k.a. Chuchotage)

This is a form of simultaneous interpreting, but the interpreter does not need technical simultaneous interpreting equipment. Instead, the interpreter, who is situated next to target language listeners, whispers the translated message to them. Read More »

Consecutive Interpreting

This mode of interpreting is used in press conferences and interviews, performances and product presentations, small meetings, official lunches and dinners, etc. In the modern world much interpreting is now simultaneous, but consecutive interpreting can be more suitable for small groups.
