03. How do I determine what type of interpretation I need?

Consecutive translation is the most common translation in our practice. It is used when accompanying our clients to notaries, banks, institutions, business meetings, etc. It is preferred because it requires the presence of an interpreter who translates between parties on hold.

 

Simultaneous translation is used for parallel translation at the time of speaking. It is more expensive and difficult, as it requires a lot of concentration on the part of the translator who translates in real-time. For this type of engagement lasting more than 1 hour, it is mandatory to hire two translators to take turns to ensure the required quality. Such commitments are made when meetings are held between people from different countries, speaking different languages, in connection with organized official events with the general public - conferences, seminars, symposia, public speeches and interviews and other forums of a similar nature.
