Language interpreters convert one spoken language to another, often working in real-time. They hear the spoken words and sentences of one individual and immediately translate them into a language that the listener can understand. Usually this communication is bi-directional, so the interpreter must be able to understand and speak clearly in both languages. It takes a high degree of fluency to foster accurate, meaningful communications in these situations.
Language interpreters are essential in a variety of different settings. When someone is presenting to an international audience as a group, the interpreter must not only provide an accurate translation but also hold the audience’s attention. Interpreters can also assist via telephone or video link in a variety of situations, including business negotiations, medical diagnoses, and legal discussions.

Consecutive interpreters are often used in international conferences, where the presenter speaks a different language than a portion of the audience. The interpreter listens to the speaker in one language and translates what they are saying into another language during pauses in the speech.
Legal interpreters may work in courts of law, or provide consecutive interpretation during the deposition process, and during questioning by legal authorities.
Medical interpreters help patients and medical staff, who speak different languages, to communicate with one another, assisting in the presentation of symptoms and diagnosis, as well as helping the medical staff instruct the patient regarding treatment modalities.
Experienced consecutive interpreters are talented and highly skilled, and therefore in high demand. If you need the services of a consecutive interpreter, please let us know at least 7 to 10 days in advance — more if possible. We may be able to provide one for you on shorter notice, subject to availability, however additional charges will apply.
