INTERPRETING - FIDELITY AND ACCURACY OF SPEECH 

A SERVICE PERFORMED BY PROFESSIONALS

Interpretation is the oral rendering of a speech from a source language into a target language. The interpreter has the ability to render speeches with fidelity and accuracy from/to a foreign language to Romanian, keeping the tone and level of the source language, without adding or omitting information from the source speech.

Generally, we make a difference between consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting.

Consecutive interpreting

It is more common, and it consists in rendering the speech in the target language, after accumulating a volume of information; speaker pauses while the interpreter renders the speech in the target language. Often, the interpreter takes notes; especially the interpreter writes down numbers or proper names, which are useful while interpreting. Examples of situations where you need consecutive interpretation:

  • For foreigners who give various statements in front of a notary;
  • For civil marriage, if one spouse is not a native speaker of Romanian;
  • For appointments or business visits and meetings;
  • For negotiations and tenders;
  • For press conferences;
  • For seminars or meetings, etc.

Simultaneous interpreting

In this case, delivering the speech in the target language is performed without waiting for the speaker to finish his/her speech in the source language. The interpretation is performed simultaneously with delivering the source speech. Rarely the interpreter takes notes, given the rapid succession of stages of work: the interpreter listens to the speech, the speech passes then through the language filter and finally it is delivered in the target language. For smooth running of simultaneous interpretation sessions, it is recommended at least a team of two interpreters, or more, and the minimal technical equipment: phonic booth, headphones, microphone, workstation with one channel (or multiple channels, where there are several working languages).


Examples of situations where you need simultaneous interpretation:

  • Seminars
  • Congress
  • International conferences

Other types of interpreting:

  • ​Chuchotage / Whispering
  • Over-the-Phone Interpreting
  • Videoconferencing

Court interpreting

Court interpreting is known as legal interpretation or judicial interpretation, whether it takes place in a courtroom, tribunal or conference.

When to use court interpreting or legal interpreting?

Court interpreting is required for any judicial procedure, where an important participant in the proceedings, such as defendant or witness, does not master the local language and therefore cannot follow the procedure properly. Sometimes it takes more than one language pair. Court interpreters have considerable responsibility because any mistake could undermine the on going trial.

They are also faced with more difficult working conditions than other interpreters, as in the courtroom there is no particular interpreting equipment, such as booths for interpreters. Their work consists in interpreting for the people who usually are nervous and are not used to public speaking, which entails a higher degree of challenge and a higher level of concentration. 

Interpreting services require an increased effort from the interpreter, therefore when you book an interpreter we recommend a six-hour day of actual interpreting. In addition, it is recommended to make available for the interpreters documents, informative materials, presentations, brochures or any other documents related to your event and for which tyou need interpreting services.

Regardless of your situation, feel free to contact us in advance in order to discuss your needs for interpreting services and identify together the best solution. VALLEY TRANSLATION SERVICES believes in close collaboration to ensure the best results!
