Facilitating seamless communication
interpreter at a meeting

Our worldwide network of certified and accredited interpreters combine superior language skills along with a thorough knowledge of subject matter, protocols, and cultures. Whether in a court of law, a medical facility, or at an international conference, ATP interpreters remain virtually transparent. Somewhat like a conduit of languages, an interpreter facilitates communication seamlessly. Following strict codes of neutrality, our language team members impart speakers’ meaning and emphasis without embellishing the remarks or injecting personal opinions. Below, are the various modes of interpretation descriptions for your better understanding. If you still have questions – we have prepared an easy way to help you decide What Service Do I Need?

Consecutive Interpretation

Consecutive interpretation allows two parties to converse – even if they speak different languages. Attorneys, claims adjusters and independent medical examiners often use this mode to communicate with foreign language speakers. Each party speaks at length, relaying a “paragraph” of ideas that are then interpreted for the other party. Consecutive interpreters develop and utilize their own ideogramic symbols for notes to retain the thoughts and ideas of the speaker.

Simultaneous Interpretation

The simultaneous mode of interpretation requires the combined skills of listening to and comprehending one language while speaking another language at the very same time. Typically, this service is for international conferences and multilingual business meetings. Simultaneous interpretations generally use electronic transmission equipment to a group of listeners and speakers just a few seconds after the words or phrases are spoken in the source language.

Escort Interpretation

This method utilizes a combination of the simultaneous and consecutive modes of interpretation to relay the speaker’s message.  The interpreter speaks directly to an individual listener and normally no requirement for electronic equipment. But there are occasions when using whisper headsets are better. This mode is appropriate for one or two individuals in a group that speak a different language from the rest. Normally, this mode of interpretation is good for informal conversations. In addition, tourists and foreign delegates often engage escort interpreters for various types of excursions.
