Since 2005, LITS has also offered high quality interpreting services as well as our professional translation services.
We only use qualified linguists for our face to face interpreting services, which means that you can be certain that they will be of the very highest quality.
Interpreting services are now becoming crucial to the day to day running of a whole host of Government bodies, local authorities and businesses both large and small.
WHICH INTERPRETING SERVICE DO YOU NEED?
We provide two different types of face to face interpreting services you can choose from to best suit your needs – Consecutive Interpreting and Simultaneous Interpreting.
Consecutive Interpreting is the most commonly requested as it is the easiest service to arrange and set up. A consecutive Interpreter will wait until the end of the speaker’s sentence before interpreting.
Simultaneous Interpreting takes a bit more setting up and is ideal for situations where there are people present who speak many different languages. For example, you may have seen simultaneous interpreting in action, such as the UN conferences, where there are many leaders from different countries who each speak a different language. Simultaneous interpreting requires Interpreters working in teams of 2 or 3 in sound-proofed booths. Interpreters interpret what the speaker is saying as they are saying it into a microphone, and the delegates listen through headsets.
JUDICIAL/LEGAL AND COURT INTERPRETERS, CROWN, HIGH, COUNTY, AND APPEAL COURTS
Nowhere is the quality of an Interpreter more important than in a court of law. That’s why our legal Interpreters go through a stringent series of tests and constant assessment and training to ensure their work is of the highest quality. All our legal and court Interpreters have also been CRB checked to ensure they can be trusted to interpret only the words that are spoken – accurately.
