Interpreting Services: Interpreting services available 24/7 for any industry, in any language! Consecutive interpretation, simultaneous interpretation, sight interpretation, and more. Access our interpreting services over the phone instantly, or in person within 24 hours.
Interpreting services are the provision of spoken or signed language communication by a professional interpreter to convey a message from the language of the original speaker or writer, into the language of the listener. This task requires the language interpreter to preserve the register (or tone) of the message, as well as the meaning behind that message.
Interpreting is an audible form of communication where at least one message in the communication is spoken. For example:
- A conference interpreting service where the speaker’s message is simultaneously interpreted into sign language. (1 spoken, 1 visual)
- A medical interpreting service involving a patient in an American hospital who doesn’t speak English. The interpreter relays the patient’s needs to the doctor, and the doctor’s diagnosis to the patient. (2 spoken)
- A document sight interpreting service where an English woman finds a family letter written in Italian and wants to know what it says. The interpreter reads the letter aloud in English. (1 visual, 1 spoken)
For an interpreting service to occur, the interpreter can be in person, over the phone, or on a video chat to relay the message. As long as the interpreter can hear the message clearly, has a solid understanding of the subject matter, and is fluent in both the source and target languages, a clear and accurate interpretation ensues.
Transcription: The evaluation of audio and video recordings from group discussions, interviews and other interactions for analysis (e.g. in the context of qualitative research), must be recorded in writing. We prepare the transcripts for you. Depending on the purpose, there are different transcription methods for this type of writing, e.g. to consider linguistic and, if necessary, gestural or mimic forms of expression and to reflect on the circumstances (atmospheric, visual and other particularities).
Depending on the specifications, these may be transcriptions in which the standard orthography is considered and dialects and other linguistic features (accentuations, pauses, gap fillers and pronunciations) are not incorporated.
In other cases, a literary transcription should be implemented, noting linguistic peculiarities such as pauses in conversation, assimilations, elisions, word extensions or filler words etc.
Phonetic transcription is another form of a transcription according to IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) or transcriptions that use a faithful representation of the colloquial language.
In the event of a request, the transcript layout must also be determined in advance: The layout should include a simple line style (here, for example, interview questions and their answers follow each other alternatively) or a so-called better score style to guarantee an exact representation with concurrent language.
Voiceover: Voiceover is the translation and synchronization of audio files. A voiceover artist or interpretor plays the translated and appropriately edited text back synchronously. This kind of editing is often used in films, video and computer games. In marketing, internationalism is a necessity. Therefore, it is essential to localize film material in the form of documentaries, features and adverts for the respective markets.
Subtitling: Subtitling is a type of audio-visual translation that consists of adapting and summarising the original speech and presenting it as written text (usually displayed at the bottom of the screen). It can often prove more complicated than other types of translation owing to the various challenges that may arise. If you are looking for professional and high quality subtitling services, don’t hesitate to send us an email.
Translation of Movies: The glamorous world of movies and entertainment motivates many translators to choose to work in this industry. However, in some aspects, it can be even trickier than types of translation that are usually considered complex. In subtitling, for example, the translator is faced with constraints of format and expression that’s rarely present in any other mode of translation.
Movies are the best form of entertainment. People like to hang out with their friends and watch their favorite movies in the cinema. Moviemakers make movies to address the social problems of the world. What is the use of movies, if they are not translated into your native language? You cannot enjoy the movie and the social message that the movie maker wants to convey is not conveyed. To release a movie for a global audience, you need to translate it into multiple languages.
Nevertheless, translation for movies is important and rewarding work: as a movie translator, you will be the messenger of a piece of cinematic culture into another language. Range of languages available for translation of movies includes: English, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Malay, Indonesian, Thai, Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew, Amharic, Filipino, Malayalam, Punjabi, Slovenian, Turkish, Romanian, Czech, Polish, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Greek, Dutch, Slovak, Hungarian, Swedish, Icelandic, Danish, Norwegian, etc.
