How much notice do you need in order to provide an interpreter?

Translation.ie. is proud to be able to provide you with same-day interpreter requests for the most commonly spoken languages throughout Ireland. However, to ensure that an interpreter is available, we suggest you contact our translation company at least 1 or 2 days before the actually date for non-urgent assignments.

What is the difference between consecutive interpretation and simultaneous interpretation?

Consecutive Interpretation requires the speaker to stop after a few sentences and let the interpreter interpret the speaker's statement. In Simultaneous Interpretation the interpreter, who uses interpreting equipment and works with another interpreter in a soundproof booth, listens to the speaker's speech in one language and simultaneously converts it into another language, without waiting for the speaker to finish his or her statement. Simultaneous Interpreting is used for high-level conferences, while Consecutive Interpreting is used mostly for client meetings and depositions.

What language interpreters do you provide?

In the last 10 years, Translation.ie has provided interpreting services for more than 150 languages and dialects spoken in Ireland.

How many interpreters are you working with?

Currently, we are proud to have more than 3000 highly-skilled professional interpreters from almost every language and cultural background.
