Interpreting

Interpreting deals with spoken language whereas translation deals with written language.

There are two primary modes of interpreting: consecutive and simultaneous. In consecutive interpretation, the speaker pauses after each brief passage to allow the interpreter to speak. In simultaneous interpreting, the interpreter, who is usually in a sound-proof booth, listens to the speaker through headphones and continuously renders the interpretation into a microphone. The speaker is thus not interrupted; listeners hear the interpretation over headphones.

We now provide on-site consecutive interpretation, initially on a limited basis to educational institutions in or near Lake County, Illinois. Please contact us to discuss your needs.
