When high-calibre experts come together from around the world to attend a conference or convention, they have to be able to rely on smooth and accurate communication, with no room for error!
This calls for a team of adept interpreters who have many years of experience in the relevant specialist field. This means that even a difficult dialect or an intricate machine tool control system are no problem whatsoever.
We provide professional consecutive and simultaneous interpreters for all commonly required language directions.
If required, we can work with our long-standing partner Brähler ICS Konferenztechnik International Congress Service AG to supply you with a complete technical package.
Simultaneous interpreting is the customary method used to translate and convey subject matter as it is spoken at conferences or seminars using a microphone and headphones, with the interpreters usually sitting in a soundproof booth.
The extreme concentration needed for successful simultaneous interpreting means that interpreters have to work alternately in shifts of round 30 minutes. You should therefore always plan for two interpreters per language direction.
A lower-cost alternative, in particular for training courses and so on, is the use of what is known as a “whisper” system. Here, the interpreter sits with the participants in the room.
We would be happy to advise you on the relative merits of the different systems.
With consecutive interpreting, the interpreter sits between the discussion partners and translates what has been said at the end of each logical segment of the conversation.
The demands made on the interpreter here are different, but certainly not any easier. Interpreters must be capable of “storing” lengthy text passages in their short-term memory, translating them within seconds and conveying their meaning accurately and fluently.
