Expert in all conference interpreting settings

Professional interpreters and equipment that covers all your conference interpreting requirements.

Simultaneous interpreting

In a sound-proof booth with a direct view onto the conference room, the interpreter listens to a speaker through earphones and simultaneously transmits the message in another language through a microphone to listeners in the room.

Consecutive interpreting

Seated at the conference table, the interpreter listens to a speech, takes notes and then renders the meaning of the speaker's message in another language.

Whispered interpreting

Seated in the meeting room, the interpreter whispers in another language, to a maximum of two delegates, what is being said by a speaker.
