Interpreting Services

DISKUSIJA provides the following interpreting services:

  • Consecutive interpreting
  • Simultaneous interpreting
  • Whisper interpreting

 

Consecutive interpreting: This refers to interpretation where the speaker and interpreter speak in turns. The speaker pauses after each sentence or phrase and the interpreter translates the essence of that sentence or phrase during the pause. To ensure the accuracy of the translation, the interpreter usually makes brief notes while the speaker is speaking. This type of interpreting does not require any special equipment. Depending on the duration and intensity of the interpretation, one or two interpreters work.

Simultaneous interpreting: This refers to interpretation where an interpreter translates at the same time as the speaker speaks. Usually the interpreter lags behind the speaker by no more than one sentence. Simultaneous interpreting requires special conference equipment. The interpreter has no direct contact with the speaker; he or she works in the interpreter’s booth and listens to the speaker via headphones. Simultaneous interpretation requires two interpreters working in 15 to 20 minute intervals.

Whisper interpreting: This refers to simultaneous interpretation, which does not require any specialist equipment. The interpreter quietly translates what the speaker says to the listener. Whisper interpreting is used when only a small part of the audience requires the help of an interpreter.

We offer interpreting services during events such as:

  • Conferences
  • Workshops and training
  • Presentations
  • Business meetings
  • Business trips

 

We analyse every specific order – the type of event, venue, and subject matter – and select interpreters with relevant experience from our wide network of professionals. Even though our interpreters are highly qualified, they prepare themselves for every interpreting event. Therefore, we ask our clients to provide us with all available material: the texts of speeches, company presentations, glossaries or any other available information to help our interpreters familiarise themselves with the subject matter and terminology so that they are able to properly provide the service and meet the expectations of the client.

Interpreting is charged on an hourly basis. When two interpreters work, the number of work hours is doubled. The minimum rate is calculated per 2 hours.
