Interpreting Services in Singapore
With a professional team of top interpreters in all the major Asian languages – all of whom have native proficiency in both English and the target language – Lingua Technologies International is at the forefront of language interpreting services with a distinguished list of local and overseas clients.
Two distinct types of Interpreting Services
There are several types of Interpreting Service available but the most commonly used ones are as follows:
In simultaneous interpreting (SI), interpreters render the message in the target language almost immediately after the source language is spoken while the speaker continues to speak. Interpreters are usually equipped with interpretation equipment such as headsets that are linked to the speaker’s microphone to ensure that they can hear the words clearly, and can be located a distance away from the speaker, but in the same room, ideally observing the conference from soundproof booths.
Simultaneous interpreting service is usually required at international conferences. Due to its intensive nature, two or more interpreters are generally on hand so they can alternate. Upon special request, solo simultaneous interpretation can also be provided for duration of up to 4 hours but do note that this is not the common industry standard practice.
In consecutive interpreting (CI), interpreters render the message after the source language speaker has finished speaking. The speech is usually broken up into small segments, and the interpreter sits beside the speaker, processing the interpretation as the speaker progresses through the message.
Consecutive interpreting is commonly required for interviews, business meetings, medical consultations, marriage registrations, press briefings, court hearings and other occasions where the number of people who require interpreting is small, and usually only one interpreter is required for each speaker.
How do you separate the Best from the Mediocre?
A good interpreter apart from being highly competent in both the source and target languages should also be familiar with the origin country’s language culture, perhaps a bit of their history and also their beliefs. A very good example would be the Japanese language, with varying levels of greeting based on the seniority, and whether they are talking to their family, superiors, fellow colleagues, or friends.
But because this service is of human effort after all, there are bound to be audience’s opinions formed towards the linguists’ appearance, sex, dressing, voice, etc. While this is unavoidable, we can minimise such biasness by engaging interpreters who are not run of the mill occasional part-timers but those who are equipped with years of experience and having done hundreds of interpreting services.
Lingua Technologies International – Home of the Best Interpreters
Interpreters’ services are mostly required for exhibitions, trade shows, conferences, training, business meetings, the Court of Law, tour groups, Government and political leader visits, and the list goes on.
In order for us to understand your requirement better, we have prepared a checklist for you to fill up. These includes information such as, the language pair required, the nature of the event, the topic or the industry pertaining to the event, the venue, the number and the type of audience, the type of interpretation needed, any interpretation equipment rental needed, etc.
By gathering all these information, we would be able to help identify interpreters with the right fit for your event. As good interpretations are in high demand, we recommend booking your interpreters as early as 6 months ahead of your event. With all that settled, you will be more assured of a smooth and successful event.
