Absolute Translations is the UK’s premier Punjabi interpreting services provider. We’ve worked with major public organisations and private clients since 2011. Our wealth of experience makes the difference. And we have the expertise to give our clients exactly what they need, when they need it most. Each client gets a bespoke service crafted to meet specific requirements and fulfill special requests. An interpreter can support you—remotely or in person—at any event, in any location in the world. Interviews, medical appointments, court hearings and prison visits, meetings, festivals, conferences and summits: from everyday events to extraordinary occasions, we deliver the full package. Whether you book far in advance or need an interpreter on the same day, you’ll get a comprehensive service that’s beyond expectations. According to the latest census, Punjabi is the third most spoken language in England and Wales. And it’s the 10th most widely spoken language in the world with over 100 million native speakers. When you need an interpreter, you need more than someone who simply speaks the language. The vast majority of our Punjabi interpreters are native, so they understand the history and culture, values, customs, traditions, festivals, and rites of passage of this diverse community. They’re professionally trained and qualified interpreters with a minimum of 5 years experience. They can interpret the two dialects of Pakistani and Indian, and are familiar with the different forms of address and greetings appropriate for Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims. And that means we’re not just present at your event. We’re an integral part of it.

Fast, Reliable Interpreting. No Extra Charges
Fed up of being quoted one figure and paying another? At Absolute Translations, we don’t add travel time and expenses after the event. Everything you will pay when we invoice is included upfront in our quote. We’re completely transparent when it comes to costs. So you won’t get any nasty surprises. That’s what makes us different.
Perfect for court hearings, barrister meetings, prison visits, and smaller conferences, consecutive interpreting is when an interpreter translates a short period of speech into the client’s required language. There’s no fixed time as such, but 5 minutes tends to be the upper limit. This type of interpreting encourages conversation to flow naturally, which makes it great for questions and answers. The short bursts of speech give all parties chance to absorb what’s being said and then give a carefully considered response. We can provide court interpreters worldwide, for over 200 language combinations
Conference and simultaneous interpreting is often used for conferences, summits, annual meetings, and forums. The Punjabi interpreter sits in a soundproofed booth wearing a headset and interprets what the speaker has said into a microphone as he or she is saying it. The process is almost instantaneous. The intense nature of this kind of interpreting requires a main interpreter plus a minimum of one colleague working in 20-minute bursts. Conference delegates have headsets with a number of channels so they can choose the language in which they’d like to hear the interpretation. For this type of interpreting, we source professionals with specific training and qualifications. We can also supply the requisite audio equipment and booths.
Best suited to short conversations with a greater degree of urgency, telephone interpreting is just like a conference call. We manage the process by connecting client, interpreter, and third party. The client speaks, and the interpreter translates what is said into the third party’s target language. The third party gives a response to the interpreter, who then communicates it to the client in their language.
