To get your message across to a foreign audience in real time, you need to speak their language. Converting speech between two languages requires interpreters who are experienced linguists, subject matter experts, and reliable professionals. A&K’s interpreters will make sure that your audience gets the message.
The process starts with an individual consultation in order to determine your exact needs. We then advise you as to which type of interpreting best suits the requirements of your multilingual event and then appoint a dedicated Project Manager to oversee every detail of its planning and implementation.
Simultaneous Interpreting is employed at larger events such as international meetings, conferences and congresses which require two or more languages. Working in sound-proof booths, simultaneous interpreters usually work in pairs (two for every language) and then provide a running interpretation to the audience in their language of choice via individual headsets.
Consecutive Interpreting is most commonly used for press conferences, speeches and similar events. No special equipment is required, the interpreter stands next to the main speaker and delivers the message in the language of the audience.
Ad-hoc Interpreting (sometimes known as liaison or business interpreting) is recommended for negotiations, discussions and generally smaller meetings. This simple, yet highly effective technique requires no specialist equipment, only the services of one of our expert interpreters.
This specialized and demanding field covers court proceedings, public deeds executed before a notary and if required, the services of an officially certified ‘sworn’ interpreter.
