On-site interpreting

On-site interpreting means that the interpreter is with you on site. The interpreter’s task is to interpret everything that is being said as if it were the speaker himself who said it. The interpreter’s role is to be an unnoticed filter that is discreetly present and makes what is said understandable.

What are the benefits of hiring an on-site interpreter?

The interpreter is present on site and enables a conversation between two people who do not speak the same language. For on-site interpreting, the interpreter often needs to travel and we are happy to help you coordinate the assignments so that they are done as effectively as possible for you as a customer.

The interpreter can also interpret visual impressions.

It enables the interpreter to see facial expressions and gestures.

There is no risk of technical interruptions.

What should I consider when hiring an on-site interpreter?

Make sure that you, your discussion partner and the telephone are positioned forming a triangle. The interpreter should be at the tip of the triangle and you and the person you are talking to should sit opposite each other in order to be able to make eye contact during the conversation.

Speak clearly and calmly and not too long at a time.
