Interpreting, an essential role
Interpreting is a delicate exercise in which there is no room for error: an interpreter must have absolute fluency in the languages involved, excellent communication skills, extreme focus and high accuracy. With its extensive international network of specialised interpreters, Technicis has everything you need in an interpretation service. Whether you're holding a casual or formal event, our teams provide targeted solutions in line with your standards.
Simultaneous interpreting services
At conferences or similar large-scale events that bring together many people of different nationalities, the message conveyed must be understood by all the attendees. Simultaneous interpreting involves the synchronous retransmission by the interpreter of the words of the speaker in a given language, as they are spoken and without interruption. The interpreter, who sits in a soundproof cabin, wears a headset and translates the speech into a microphone as the words are spoken by the speaker. The interpreter's words are transmitted to the listeners via their receiving headsets.
Consecutive interpretation services
Consecutive interpretation involves the interpreter retransmitting the speaker's words to the audience in a given language, often with the aid of notes, once the speaker has finished speaking. This technique, which is more time-consuming than simultaneous interpretation, is generally used for smaller meetings (symposiums, seminars, negotiations, press conferences, etc.).
Whispered interpreting and liaison interpreting
These two types of interpreting are perfectly adapted for more informal events or select committee meetings.
- Whispered interpreting is a type of simultaneous interpreting in which the interpreter retransmits the speaker's words in a given language in a very low voice (whispering) directly into the ear of the listener. It is particularly suitable for bilateral discussions.
- Liaison interpreting involves retransmitting the speaker's words phrase by phrase (or based on a question/answer model). This type of interpreting is used especially during trade talks, business trips or dinners, professional meetings, trade fairs, etc.
