What are modes of Interpreting?

Interpreters connect speakers of different languages through various methods or modes. This ability to deliver language expertise in multiple modes is helpful because, sometimes, one mode is more appropriate than others. 

Do you need a telephone, video, or on-site interpreter? This article will explore how you might engage a language professional. Whether for an individual, business, or government entity, you will learn how to determine which mode of interpreting suits your communication needs.

Telephone Interpreting Services

Telephone interpreting offers a convenient and immediate solution for overcoming language barriers. It’s an excellent option for situations requiring quick decision-making or for facilitating communication between parties in different locations. Our telephone interpreting services provide real-time interpretation in 190+ languages, ensuring clarity and understanding no matter where you are.

Video Conference Interpreting

The digital age has seen a surge in the popularity of video conferencing. Our video conference interpreting services bring a more personal touch to remote communication, allowing for visual cues and a closer connection between parties. This mode is particularly useful for complex discussions where non-verbal communication is crucial.

On-site Interpretation Solutions

On-site interpretation is the ideal choice for situations where the physical presence of an interpreter is necessary. This mode is especially relevant for events, conferences, legal proceedings, and medical appointments where face-to-face interaction is crucial. Our certified interpreters are trained to handle the nuances of live communication, ensuring a smooth and effective exchange of information.
