Court Approved Interpreter Displaying Her ID Card

Court Approved Interpreters

Consecutive interpreting involves the speaker talking for a short period of time and the interpreter then translating this into the required foreign language, allowing the speech to flow more fluently. This type of interpreting service is ideal for court interpreting and is used by legal professionals in court hearings, meetings with barristers and during prison visits, while it is also a common technique used in small conferences or group discussions. Our team consists of professional court registered interpreters with a minimum of 5 years’ experience, that also comply with our ISO 17100:2015 accreditation, the latest certification specific to translation services.


Conference Interpreter in Live Session

Simultaneous Conference Interpreting

Our project management team drives the whole process, taking care of everything from the interpreters to the technical equipment. Normally, for simultaneous interpreting you would need a soundproofed booth, fully equipped for 2 interpreters to sit in, listen to the conference through headphones and translate into a microphone. With a proven track record for providing a successful service to public sector bodies, financiers, as well as market research, medical and technical organisations all over the world, we will provide you with a complete service including a tour guide system or sound equipment, booths and a technician who will be present throughout the event.
