Translating and Interpreting Office

Our Interpreting Services for You

In our globalised and connected world it is standard practice for personnel from all walks of life, managers and executives from businesses and politics to come together at an international level.

Our experienced, qualified interpreters are available to assist you in one or more working languages in the course of negotiations, meetings, conferences or similar gatherings.

Simultaneous Interpreting

During simultaneous interpreting the interpreter interprets simultaneously and continuously, either via simultaneous interpreting equipment or directly at a whisper (chuchotage). Our experienced team of interpreters can support you in your international meetings and conferences, whereby two interpreters are provided per language, alternating in interpreting at regular intervals.

In order to ensure smooth comprehension during the interpreting period it is necessary for the interpreters to be thoroughly familiarised with the subject at hand. It is therefore highly advisable that the documents for the discussions and meetings are provided in advance. The documents are treated with the utmost care and discretion at all times.

Consecutive Interpreting (Negotiations Interpreting)

Interpreters for consecutive and negotiations interpreting are employed in tours, works inspections, court cases — in brief: in all circumstances where the previous speaker has completed his address in the other language.

Conference Interpreting / Conference Equipment

To enable multilingual translation services at conferences or major events it is advisable to conduct the language communication via corresponding conference equipment. Two types of conference equipment are employed in this:

  • Simultaneous interpreting equipment
  • Chuchotage interpreting equipment

We will be happy to procure an offer for your event from our partners or supply the required addresses. For offers with conference equipment the costs are transferred 1 : 1, meaning that no further mediation fee is incurred.

The simultaneous interpreting equipment takes the form of a cubicle measuring approximately 1.70 m × 1.70 m. The equipment should be positioned directly in the room in which the event is taking place. This enables eye contact to be maintained between speaker and interpreter.

The guide systems are small and easily transportable, packed in cases. This makes them ideal for mobile use at event locations where a fixed interpreting cubicle is unsuitable, such as on plant tours and inspections. The disadvantage of these mobile guide systems lies in the fact that no group discussions are possible.

How are the Costs of Interpreting Calculated ?

Calculation of the costs of interpreting services is made on an hourly basis for the working and travel time, plus travel expenses.

In the case of simultaneous interpreting a daily rate is employed that covers working and travel time, including travel expenses. In agreement with the customer, any possible costs of accommodation and food shall be invoiced additionally or assumed directly by the customer.

A daily fixed rate is also advisable for long conferences or guided city tours.

We will be happy to advise you further on this and provide you with a free offer tailored to your specifications. Simply use our Interpreting Enquiry Form or give us a call!
