Frequently Asked Questions

Q. TRANSLATOR OR INTERPRETER?

A.. Translators deal with the written word whilst interpreters deal with the spoken word.

Q. CONSECUTIVE OR SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETING?

A.Consecutive interpretation is frequently used for meetings, negotiations, training courses where the interpreter listens to what is being said, then translates it after the person has stopped speaking. Simultaneous interpretation is mainly used for large meetings where the interpreter hears you speak through headsets and translates at the same time-hence, simultaneous.

Q. CAN COMPUTERS TRANSLATE FOR ME?

A.Yes, but the quality is unreliable. The human translator can think, a computer can't. Don't use a computer if your message is important.

Q. HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

A.Our cost will be based upon length and type of language and complexity. Translation cost is based on price per 1000 words. If you would like a free quote or to discuss our interpretation or tuition fees please visit our contact page. Our online community of translators means reduced overheads and lower costs passed on to our customers.
