What Is Conference Interpretation Services?

As a widely used mode of interpretation, conference interpreting requires one or more fully-trained and experienced interpreter(s) to translate from one spoken language to another in real time. Conference interpreters can switch between simultaneous and consecutive interpreting as per their employer’s specific needs. We understand the pandemic has changed the way many businesses and people work and how conferences are held.

For those taking their meeting online, we have video remote interpreting services for communication needs across cultures.

Consecutive Conference Interpreting Or Simultaneous Conference Interpreting

conference interpreting - simultaneous or consecutive

In simultaneous interpreting, conference interpreters listen carefully to the speech and relay it back in the target language via a microphone linked to the receivers’ headsets, with about a 2-second delay.

While in consecutive interpreting, interpreters wait for the natural pauses to deliver the interpretation, facilitating seamless communication between multilingual parties.

Be it simultaneous or consecutive, each type of interpretation calls for highly skilled professionals with an in-depth knowledge of languages, subject matter expertise, and nerves of steel to keep diverse attendees on the same page.

Luckily, that’s what our conference interpretation services offer.

Wordspath’s top-rated conference interpreting services find widespread application in seminars, business meetings, press c onferences, negotiations, conventions, and more, catering to various needs. Working with the best conference interpreters in the industry will give you the peace of mind that all the conference invitees will return home fully understanding the content you intend to convey. That’s the ultimate goal of any event.

Conference Translation vs. Conference Interpreting

Though people sometimes use translation and interpretation interchangeably, they are not the same thing.

Translation deals with written texts, while interpretation is delivered orally. Each profession requires a unique set of linguistic skills. Although some highly talented individuals excel at both interpretation and translation tasks, most linguists are well-versed in one of them.

For example, we send professional on-site or online interpreters to break down the communication barrier in real-time for a conference with interpreting needs. As for materials related to meetings or conference arrangements, our translation and localization team works closely with conference organizers to provide all necessary linguistic support in the languages of all event participants.
