On-site Interpretation

Our global reach enables us to arrange for on-site interpretation anywhere in the world. Just let us know what kind of interpreter you need where and when.

The two basic modes of interpretation are called consecutive and simultaneous. In consecutive interpretation, the mode that is commonly used in one-on-one and small group settings, the source-language speaker and the interpreter take turns speaking. We offer consecutive interpretation services in over 170 languages. Our consecutive interpreters maintain strict standards of professionalism and possess exceptional linguistic and interpersonal skills to help facilitate interactions between two (and sometimes more) languages.

Generally used for large conferences or meetings and / or environments where two or more languages are required, simultaneous interpretation is a much more complex and strenuous process than consecutive interpretation. Interpreters sit in an isolated booth, listen to the speaker through a headset, and speak the translation into a microphone, from where it is wirelessly transmitted to headsets worn by audience members. Sometimes referred to as UN-style interpretation, this service requires trained interpreters and specialised equipment, all of which can be provided by Overtaal.
