                      Zoom Interpretation Services

                      Zoom interpreting services fall under the ambit of remote interpreting in which we attend the conference, hearing, meeting, or whatever you may call it, with you on Zoom video conferencing platform and interpret the language for you and your audience. Ever since the pandemic hit the world and brought life to the standstill, rendering physical movement impossible, Zoom provided much respite to the businesses, lawyers, healthcare professionals looking for different ways to connect with their clients remotely. Our interpreters make their Zoom conversations more effective and rewarding by helping interpret the language for our clients and their non-English audience to communicate freely.

                      Face to Face Interpreting Services

                      In face to face interpreting, our interpreter will remain physically present with you at, say, a business meeting or a court proceeding, or at any other appointment, you may have with a client who speaks a different language. Our interpreter will then interpret the speech back and forth so that you both can understand each other fairly well. When you have a medical appointment to attend or are headed for a confidential hearing, we can offer consecutive interpreting in such situations. But we can also offer simultaneous interpreting service as well, should you need it for international conferences.

                      Remote Interpreting Services – Telephone & Video

                      In remote interpreting, our interpreter will remain available to interpret at the other end of the telephone or video link. This comes in handy in cases where the request for a meeting is so abrupt that you don’t have time to go in person and do it remotely instead, using the medium of telephone or video. If you’re in such a situation, just let us know any time of day and from anywhere, we will set things up in a matter of seconds.

                      Face-to-face interpreting calls for greater cultural and linguistic sensitivity to provide the contextual base to the interpretation. This means our interpreters take cultural sensitivities into account when interpreting in a variety of scenarios. And in court appointments where not just complex legal terminology can freak out even the erudite audience, but non-verbal elements of the conversation can make things awkward. But now when you’ve got our experienced interpreters by your side who communicate effectively verbal as well as non-verbal elements of communication and are well versed with niche-specific terminology, be it legal or medical.

                      Why You Need Court Interpreters?

                      Language barriers can make court proceedings extremely difficult for your defendants if they speak a different language than is spoken in the court. That can prove disastrous and might cost you the case itself. In this regard, as to why you need court interpreters, we are reminded of the R v Iqbal Begum Court of Appeal

                      The illuminating point of the hearing was the realization of the fact that the defendant remained silent for most of the proceedings because she did not understand a word of what was being spoken to her. And silence in court proceedings has implications!

                      Therefore, why you need court interpreters is in a way self-explanatory. You need it because you don’t want to be handicapped by language barriers that could jeopardize your standing in the court. After all, you’re there to win, not lose.

                      Why Use National Register of Public Services Interpreters?

                      The fact is you can’t just bring onboard any interpreter to deliver face to face interpreting service in the UK. you’re not allowed to do that, even if you wanted to. The case we discussed above forced the 1993 Runciman Royal Commission on Criminal Justice to make recommendations for a register of court interpreters in the UK. Borne out of that was NRPSI in 1994, a national register of interpreters who’re competent and skilled and adhere to the code of conduct that’s recognised nationally. 

                      Therefore, you can be sure that when you work with our interpreters registered with NRPSI you’re working with interpreters who’ve met educational, skill, training and practice standards mandatory for public service interpreting. Our interpreters are unlikely to engage in any kind of misconduct because they’re subject to the Code of Professional Conduct of NRPSI.

                      Face to face interpreting

                      Why Face to Face Interpreting?

                      Most of the time in the public sector what you need is the physical presence of an interpreter because the conversation, meeting, hearing or whatever it is, is taking place in the real world. In such situations, face to face interpreting is the best option to go with. The physical presence of the interpreter on one level settles your nerves and on another streamlines the communication between the two parties. 

                      Timing matters as well when it comes to deciding the type of interpretation to go with. For example, if you’ve received short notice for an immediate appointment, you might choose remote interpretation whether that be through audio or video is secondary. But when an appointment scheduled is a while away, or planning on some future date, face to face interpreting is ideal.

                      How Does Face to Face Interpreting Work?

                      The process of face to face interpreting is pretty straightforward. The process involved is simple. In face to face interpreting, an interpreter will interpret what is being said back and forth between two parties, between a speaker and the audience, even between a group of people as well. 

                      The interpreter will take on when the source speaker stops or pauses, interpreting the information in the language of the listener. In bidirectional consecutive interpreting, interpreters interpret back and forth in one language pair, or simply put, between the two different languages that two different speakers speak. Simultaneous interpreting, on the other hand, involves interpreting into only one language because there’s no back and forth communication going on, such as seen in large conferences where only the speaker speaks while the audience listens.

                      Language Solutions for Criminal Attorneys Preparing for Trials

                      Our immense expertise in the legal industry where we’ve been offering legal interpreting for quite a time has made us one of the sought agencies in the United Kingdom for face to face interpreting in the legal sector. If you happen to be a criminal attorney who’s up for the next trial hearing but has one worry that the key witness is French with next to zero proficiency in English. 

                      Of course, you understand fairly well how important his testifying before the court is. His testimony is too important to be left to the mercy of language barriers. It’s here we come in with language solutions in the form of face to face legal interpreting, which our certified interpreters offer. Our in-house NRPSI registered court interpreters provide interpreting services during court proceedings and trials.

                      Interpreters have to make sure there’s no misunderstanding creeping in as and when the non-English witness testifies on behalf of your client. Because misunderstandings can easily jeopardize your prospects at winning the case, that’s why we make sure we assign only linguistically competent interpreters to handle your project. 

                      Reasons to Choose Locate Translate’s Face to Face Interpreting Solutions?

                      Role Face to Face Interpreters Play in the Globalised World

                      Face-to-face interpreters do more in the globalised world than is realised or talked about. The single biggest impediment in the path of globalisation is language. Differences in languages create barriers that are hard to overcome. Here, interpreters step in to help individuals, businesses, corporations, organisations overcome language barriers. 

                      In global trade or tourism, for example, you come across lots of verbal and non-verbal communications that require translation and interpreting. For example, written communication between two parties whose language is different can only be made comprehensible through translation. But then there’s spoken conversation, be that in the audio or video form, which needs interpreters to help different parties understand its content. 

                      Think of the UN where nations wouldn’t even understand each other had it not been for interpreters who interpret the speech of the head of the state of one country into languages native to the leaders of other countries. So, not just in trade and commerce, law and healthcare, in politics as well, interpreters play a critical and constructive role. 

                      Do you have Court Certified Interpreters?

                      Yes, Locate Translate houses, court-certified interpreters, to perform legal interpreting. This is because the legal terminology is complex and taking into mind the sensitivity of legal matters, we don’t just assign any other interpreter but one with legal expertise and registered with NRPSI so that they uphold the privacy and confidentiality of the case while at the same time adhering to the standard guidelines issued from time to time by NRPSI for the interpreters to follow. Our court interpreters have worked with judges, litigants, attorneys, defendants, even with forensics and medicine teams to help with the interpreting.

                      What is Interpretation?

                      Interpretation is the real-time translation of spoken words, as spoken by the speaker, into the language understood by the listeners. In short, interpretation is the conversion of one language into another. Interpretation can be done face to face, when it is, it is called face to face interpreting, or remotely, via a phone or video conferencing.

                      Can I Use Video Interpreting Instead of Face to Face Interpreting?

                      When you say video interpreting you mean remote interpretation, which, by the way, is in vogue, thanks to technology. That’s why we offer Zoom interpreting also. Yes, video interpreting can be a lot cheaper, but what you need to understand is that it totally depends upon the circumstances you’re in that will determine whether or not you can use video instead of face to face interpreting.

                      Suppose, you receive an urgent request for a meeting with a non-English client on short notice, you will have no option but to go with video interpretation since it’s fast and readily available. Also, the setup time is very low, it will take seconds, max a minute. Without being physically present, our interpreters will offer their services remotely.

                      But when you have enough time on your clock and require interpreting in a language for which no interpreters are readily available, you may very well go with video interpreting because of the availability of a large pool of linguistic/interpreting talent.

                      However, most of the time, especially in far more formal situations, such as in legal proceedings, face to face interpreting is more ideal, because it’s not the language only that a court interpreter has to interpret, but body language as well. So, you can use video interpreting depending on the circumstances. Otherwise, face to face interpreting is imperative.
