Interpretation

Alvis offers a variety of services designed to facilitate sure communication in an array of business settings.

press conferences, internal meetings, conventions, negotiations, business discussions, and contracts.
In addition to English, we offer interpretation services for a variety of language pairs.

Types of interpretation

Simultaneous interpretation

In this approach, interpretation proceeds virtually simultaneously as the speaker speaks. Typically a half-day engagement will require two or more interpreters, while a full day will require three or more. Simultaneous interpretation makes it possible to minimize time loss so that meetings can be conducted in multiple languages.

  • Large international conferences, scientific society meetings, symposiums, etc.
  • Meetings and lectures where it’s important to keep the proceedings short (due to limited time)
  • Engagements where speech needs to be interpreted into three or more languages
  • Events with numerous speakers

*In venues that are not equipped for this type of interpretation, it will be necessary to install an interpreters’ booth as well as audio equipment.

Consecutive interpretation

In this approach, the speaker speaks for a short while and then pauses as the interpreter interprets what was just said. Although consecutive interpretation requires more time than simultaneous interpretation (about twice as much time), a higher level of accuracy is possible. In addition, no special interpretation equipment is necessary, making this the least expensive approach.

  • Small meetings, lectures, seminars, training sessions, etc.
  • Settings where there is enough time to ensure that information is communicated as precisely as possible
  • Events with only a few speakers

Whispered interpretation

In this approach, which is typically utilized when only a few individuals require the content to be interpreted into another language, the interpreter offers a whispered, virtually simultaneous interpretation to those individuals alone.

Accompanied interpretation

In this approach, an interpreter accompanies one or more individuals as they tour a plant or company, make a courtesy call, or visit a series of sightseeing destinations.
