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 123 different languages and dialects to service NSW communities.
