Face to Face Interpreting supports your communications by providing an interpreter for your meetings and appointments.
thebigword can supply interpreters for a range of situations in public and private sectors alike, such as:
- One to One Appointments
- Business Meetings
Face to Face Interpreting is often used for more complex or sensitive meetings, where multiple languages are required, or where both visual and verbal communications are used.
There are essentially two styles of Face to Face interpreting:
- Consecutive Interpreting - This is interpreting spoken content in paragraphs or passages; the interpreter will listen for a few minutes then relay the interpreted content.
- Simultaneous Interpreting - This is real time interpreting; the interpreter speaks at the same time as the speaker. They may use a headset and microphone to interpret from a booth, or stand close to the client and whisper the content.
thebigword can help you understand which style suits each engagement and provide interpreters with the most suitable skills.
