Conference Interpreting

For high level events and meetings

When delegates from different nations gather around the negotiation table or meet to exchange ideas, clear communication is of paramount importance.

ONCALL guarantees that the more language services you offer your potential conference participants, the higher the attendance and satisfaction will be.

ONCALL provides a full range of conference interpreting services. The method of interpreting utilised varies according to the requirements of our clients’ event. Our project coordinators work with you to secure the appropriate conference interpreter(s) and to ensure that the language requirements before, during and after your event are taken care of.

Types of Conference Interpreting

Simultaneous Interpreting – ONCALL works with the highest-level interpreters available for conferences, seminars and large meetings. Pairs of interpreters usually use electronic systems to simultaneously convey messages to delegates wearing head phones/ear pieces while a presenter or participant is speaking.

Whispered Simultaneous Interpreting - A sub category of Simultaneous Interpreting. The interpreter sits beside the delegate(s) and whispers the interpretation. Portable equipment can also be used to cater for groups of up to 30 delegates. Whispered simultaneous interpreting is an option for conferences or meetings where an individual or small group of delegates speaks a different language.

Consecutive Interpreting – A form of conference interpreting typically used in meetings or at formal events when one or two short addresses are translated into one or perhaps more languages for a smaller number of participants. An interpreter listens to a set number of phrases from the speaker; when the speaker pauses the interpreter gives their expert rendition in the target foreign language.

ONCALL’s elite team of interpreters ensures the facilitated discussion is meaningful and not impeded by language barriers whatever the meeting format.
