We offer onsite face-to-face interpreting of spoken information from one language to another.
This can be for health situations, legal matters, police investigations, community interviews, license testing, education situations, workshops and seminars – in individual or client-group interviews.
Our face-to-face interpreting services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We employ interpreters and translators who are certified by the National Accreditation Authority of Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). This makes sure our interpreters and translators have a high level of skills, training and professionalism.
Multicultural NSW Interpreters
Our team of NAATI-certified interpreters and translators are highly trained and experienced professionals.
They follow a strict code of conduct and are employed by Multicultural NSW. As an employer, we are committed to attracting language services professionals and providing ongoing professional development to build the capabilities necessary to ensure the delivery of accurate, accessible and responsive services.
How face-to-face interpreting works
Face-to-face interpreting facilitates communication and connectivity with people talking in different languages. There are different ways in which interpreting services can be delivered including face-to-face, video and telephone interpreting.
There are two main ways of interpreting:
- Consecutive interpreting, where the interpreter listens to large segments, takes notes, and then interprets when the speaker pauses
- Simultaneous interpreting, where the interpretation happens while listening to the source language at the same time. This is especially common in courts and at conferences.
We have expertise amongst our diverse panel of interpreters to deliver high quality, accurate interpreting services to suit your specific needs.
Languages and dialects we support
Our interpreting services offer 120 different languages and dialects to service NSW communities.
