Interpreting is the oral or signed communication of a message a person or group of people is trying to convey. When you and your audience don’t share a language, finding a good interpreter is the only solution. Affordable Language Services is your interpreting solution for personal, workplace, or community communication barriers.
We offer services in over 170 languages – including American Sign Language – and more rare languages than most language service providers. When you partner with Affordable Language Services, you are able to maintain your company’s professional reputation with a hassle-free interpreting service that’s simple for you to use and makes it easy for your customers to communicate.
Our interpreting services are available whenever, wherever you need them. No matter what you need, we provide a qualified interpreter. We have several options for various circumstances and budgets.
Consecutive interpreting refers to interpretation offered in person, with a skilled interpreter acting as the language liaison in a conversation.
Simultaneous interpreting refers to interpretation offered via an earpiece, as the words are being spoken, similar to how the United Nations conducts meetings. This option is ideal for conferences, when delays in conversation are not an option.
