Interpreting Services

Interpreting involves the spoken word, and selecting the right interpreter can make all the difference. Whether it is for a business meeting or factory tour, a court case, hospital visit or a large, multilingual conference, BLS’s interpreters and equipment technicians have the experience and professional skills to give you absolute confidence.

There are two main types of interpreting:

Consecutive Interpreting

Normally used in meetings, court, training courses or small group discussions, the interpreter listens to what is said and then interprets it after the speaker has paused, usually about every 10 seconds. For larger groups or when there is background noise, a tour-guide interpreting system is often used.

Simultaneous Interpreting

Used mainly for conferences, workshops and when large numbers of people are involved, the professional interpreter listens and interprets at the same time. This method involves very high skills levels and is tiring, so interpreters nearly always work in pairs, with the use of equipment such as soundproofed booths, headsets and microphones.

Business Language Services (BLS) Ltd. provides a full interpreting equipment and audio-visual hire service, and we will advise you on the best solution for your event.

If you put your trust in BLS it will give you peace of mind, so that you can concentrate on the business in hand.
