Interpreting and translation services in Duesseldorf
The translate. services focus primarily on interpreting - or oral translation of the spoken word - both from German to English and vice versa. Ann Pasternack works with a network of qualified conference interpreters with the necessary experience both in Germany and abroad, who are prepared to familiarise themselves with the specialist area and specific terminology of your company. Our main activity is simultaneous interpreting in Düsseldorf and its surroundings (Neuss, Cologne, Ratingen, Krefeld, Duisburg, Essen, etc.).
Professional conference interpreters are versatile and master all modes of interpreting:
The interpreters sit together in a soundproof booth and translate everything the speaker says without delay (simultaneously) into the target language. Ideally, simultaneous interpreters work together in pairs or groups of three in a specialised interpreter's booth and take turns on a regular basis to guarantee a constant high level of concentration.
The interpreter takes notes on the speaker's statements and then delivers the translation after each speaker has finished. When planning time considerations, you must keep in mind that consecutive interpreting generally makes an event twice as long.
At round-table discussions, receptions and many other kinds of occasions the interpreter delivers the interpretation after each person has finished speaking, spontaneously without taking notes.
Selecting the right equipment for the interpreters is difficult if you are not familiar with the technology required. We can help you find the right equipment and professional sound technicians who install and operate it at your conference or meeting.
