World Communications provides professional interpreting services in more than 100 languages. Consecutive and simultaneous interpreters are available for all your needs. On any given day, you may come across a number of varied situations at a business, organization, or personal level where you will need to deal with linguistic and cultural challenges at multicultural events, conferences, business meetings, teleconferencing, medical, financial and legal and court appointments, telephone calls, tours, and much more.
Interpretation services are available on a one-on-one basis or we can provide interpreters for small and large groups, conferences, and any other event.
We have a global network of professional interpreters. We only work with the most qualified interpreters for each industry and for each project.
Often companies and organizations require working with multilingual teams for business services, business meetings, conferences, trainings, workshops, product launches, and other occasions where two or more languages create a communication barrier. Our interpreters have created a positive impact at our clients’ events, reinforcing high-quality services and communication.
Interpretation is also used for personal services, medical appointments, immigration appointments, depositions, courts and other personal events.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONSECUTIVE AND SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETATION
For occasions when there is one or more speakers. The interpreter waits for the speaker to finish a sentence or an idea, and then delivers the speaker’s words in the target language. Our interpreters are professionally trained and certified. There are several ways interpreters can communicate long speeches faithfully and accurately, such as: special note-taking and memory techniques.
Consecutive interpretation is best suited for situations involving small crowds, and often when a personal touch is required. We recommend consecutive interpretation for business meetings, press conferences, teleconferences, interviews, or any one-on-one type of communication.
In general, for simultaneous interpretation, our interpreters work in a sound-proof booth that we provide. The booth enables all parts involved to focus on their work without the distraction of hearing another language. The participants must wear special headphones that we also provide, and the interpreter renders the speech into the target language while the main speaker talks. Simultaneous interpretation requires a tremendous level of concentration; simultaneous interpreters often work in teams of two, unless the need for an interpreter is relatively short. For assignments that are longer than one hour, we recommend using two interpreters.
Simultaneous interpretation is mostly used for conferences and meetings. When you have a large amount of information to share, simultaneous interpretation will help save time by delivering the speech at the same time. There is no limit to the number of people who can participate during an event where simultaneous interpretation is being used. All you need to convey your message is to use our special headphones for this type of interpretation.
The cost of the booth and the rental of interpretation devices, headphones, and equipment is given in a separate estimate depending on the number of attendants.
