SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION AND INTERPRETING
AP | PORTUGAL provides a wide range of interpreting services for any event (e.g. business meetings, conferences, congresses, to name a few) and select the most suitable interpreters according to your needs. We take into account your event?s working languages and area of expertise, assuring high quality communication for your events requiring conference interpreting.
Conference Interpreting requires a conference interpreting team consisting of two conference interpreters per language and booth swapping every half an hour.
Conference interpreters work in a soundproof conference interpreting booth and listen through headphones to the speaker, whose speech is delivered to the booth through a microphone. Almost simultaneously, they return the message by speaking into another microphone.
| · Why work with professional interpreters?
The listeners have a pair of headphones and can select the channel that will allow them to listen to the translation in the language of their choice.The interpreter's main goal is to establish communication between the speaker and the audience, conveying the message from one language to another naturally and fluently, making the speaker's elocution, tone and convictions their own, while expressing themselves in the first person.
The conference interpreter's job is not to translate every word said by the speakers, but to convey the ideas expressed, enabling true communication.
| · Face-to-Face Interpreting is still necessary
A conference interpreter can be hired by international organisations (e.g. EU, UN, NATO), public entities (government, ministries, national agencies) or the private sector (companies, societies, etc.), and can work as independent professionals or salaried workers.
