Consecutive Interpretation Services
Professional Consecutive Interpreting From a Skilled Team
In a global business landscape, clear communication across language barriers is essential. This is especially important when it comes to legal, medical, and technical issues. Poor communication can cause vital pieces of information to get lost in translation. This can impact the outcomes of legislation, cause a business deal to go sour, or even put someone’s health in danger.
Whether it’s colleagues, customers, patients, or shareholders, communicating with those who speak a different language has inherent challenges. Consecutive interpretation is a great way to bridge those language gaps and ensure a smooth and precise exchange of information.
What is consecutive interpretation? With this mode of verbal communication, the primary speaker relays their message first. Immediately after the speaker is finished with a sentence, a professional interpreter converts what they’ve said into another language. The speaker and the interpreter continue to alternate, with the interpreter waiting until the speaker pauses before they begin delivering their interpretation.
JR Language is a full-service multilingual communication solutions provider, including consecutive interpretation services. We offer these services on-site, over the phone, or remotely via cutting-edge video platforms.
On-Site or Remote: Which Consecutive Interpretation Approach is Right for You?
On-site consecutive interpreting: This option takes place at your event with a live professional interpreter. We thoughtfully review our pool of talent to select the best interpreter for your geographic location, language needs, and assignment duration.
Remote consecutive interpreting: This type of consecutive interpretation service is performed in a carefully coordinated manner over the phone or through a video platform. It requires less lead time and provides more immediate access to a broader selection of languages. If you’re looking for the most cost-effective option, phone interpretation is a good choice. It provides the benefit of accurate, professional interpretation services without the need for travel or the use of specialized equipment.
What is Consecutive Interpretation Used For?
If your multilingual needs involve large conferences, lengthy presentations, or training sessions, simultaneous interpretation services are a better approach.
One thing to keep in mind about consecutive interpreting: Since this mode of interpreting includes plenty of pauses, starts, and stops, you should expect the communication process to take a longer amount of time than usual. For this reason, it’s a good idea to factor in extra hours when you’re planning and scheduling your multilingual meeting or event.
Escort Interpretation Services for International Visits
What are escort interpretation services? This is a type of service you’ll want to use if you’re receiving a visit from someone who does not speak English—or if you’re traveling abroad and do not speak the native language of your destination. It involves the use of an escort interpreter.
This highly trained individual essentially serves as a personal assistant, accompanying clients during travel, dinners, and meetings to help ensure smooth communication at every step. An escort interpreter can also help with more informal situations and needs, such as shopping or ordering food. Often, this professional acts as a cultural liaison to help maximize their client’s success and enjoyment during their visit.
Since special equipment is typically not required, escort interpretation services generally use the consecutive interpreting method.
If you’re in the market for an escort interpreter, JR Language can pair you with the right professional for your needs. Our goal is to ensure that your interpreter has not only a superior command of the needed language(s), but also solid international experience.
