Call us to set up service today.
Consecutive and Simultaneous Interpreting Skills
We can help with your specialized needs by providing consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting.
A consecutive interpreter works on short utterances, interpreting a sentence or two at a time. This type of interpreter may facilitate the interpreting process by offering notes while interpreting, especially when dealing with long sentences. We have expert consecutive interpreters on staff who are trained in the art of bi-directional interpreting (e.g. interpreting French to a listener in English, and then an English reply back into French).
Simultaneous interpreters, often seen at the United Nations, are highly trained individuals who have the ability to speak at the same time as another person. These interpreters are most often found in courtroom settings, conferences or meetings. Decalage, a French term meaning “time lag,” refers to the delay between the moment the interpreter first hears a line, and the moment he or she renders the words into another language. Because simultaneous interpreting requires such intense concentration, our staff typically works in teams of two or more, alternating short sessions, in order to deliver the highest quality simultaneous interpreting services to you.
Medical, Legal, Escort and Other Venues for Interpreters
Our professional medical interpreting personnel can meet your interpreting needs on demand, whether we’re needed in a hospital, a medical facility, or a clinic.

Our medical interpreters are specifically trained and well versed in medical terminology, HIPAA regulations and the National Council’s Code of Ethics — and patient satisfaction is directly linked to the use of professionally trained and tested interpreters.
Legal interpreting services require stricter demands than many other types of professional interpreting, and our team is prepared to meet your needs. We have legal interpretation services professionals trained and ready for working in courtrooms or police stations. Our professional staff is qualified to meet the rigors of simultaneous interpreting, which is often required in the legal field. We provide specialized testing and training to our staff of legal interpreters, many of whom have completed continuing education within the field (from the Supreme Court, or the Administrative Office of the Courts). Also legal translation services specialists trained to work in law firms for document translations.
