 If you’re not sure which service you require, or you’d just like some advice or extra information about using an interpreter.

When you need interpretation?

Situations requiring interpreters can vary considerably. With this in mind, Amberken offers a wide range of interpreting services, every interpreting job is treated as a bespoke assignment. Some possible situations where you may need an interpreting service include:

  • During a business trip, you may need an interpreter to travel with you;
  • You may need an interpreter to provide an instant translation of a presentation you are giving;
  • Two-way interpretation may be necessary for interviews, medical appointments, smaller meetings, or legal situations (such as police interviews or court hearings);
  • Conferences may require a team of interpreters or special equipment (which we are able to advise on and provide).

When the requirement is ongoing, unexpected, or urgent, we are able to provide a telephone interpreting service. We can connect you to an interpreter in under a minute, based on the information you provide. The preferred method is a three-way conference call, although you can also use this service by passing a single phone between you.

How to choose a right interpreter?

Because of the variety of situations and contexts which may require an interpreting service, it is important to make sure the interpreter we assign is suitable for your needs. For example, in a legal or medical setting, the interpreter must have training in that field in order to provide an effective service. or if you go to a strange place and want to know the local cutural of this city, then a local interpreter will be a good choice. We can provide translators trained in any field any city, but it should be noted that costs vary considerably depending on the level of specialist training.
