Interpreting Services

2M's German interpreters have subject matter expertise in a range of industries to deliver high quality, precise interpretation services tailored onsite, over the phone or video remote requests.

Onsite German interpreting

2M on-site interpreters are here to help you bridge communication gaps, create connections and provide important information to German-speaking employees, audiences and customers.

Consecutive interpreting

Ideal for one-on-one conversations and small groups, 2M can provide German interpreters trained in consecutive interpreting to appear onsite. In consecutive interpreting, one party speaks and allows for a pause while the interpreter speaks. This cycle repeats throughout the duration of the conversation and enables clear communication between the interpreter and involved parties.

Simultaneous interpreting

Common at conferences, large-scale meetings and events, the interpreter and speaker talk simultaneously. In this case, parties can speak naturally without breaks or pauses.

Translation Memory

2M's Translation Memory (TM) operates to reduce your cost per project by identifying and applying text segments, sentences or paragraphs from your previous projects to new projects. Over time, the translation memory learns client-specific tone and terminology and suggests re-use if the word or phrase appears in the current project.

As a smart database, TM supports on-time delivery of projects by drastically reducing the manpower required to manually translate repeat content. By understanding each client's specific language and tonal preferences, TM improves the quality and consistency of translations.

Does 2M offer German localisation?

Yes. German is a language spoken in many different regions, and therefore there are many dialects. We take the time to understand your target market and purpose to ensure your content is appropriately and professionally localised. It's generally recommended to localise into 'hoch Deutsch' or 'high German', as the standard version of German. However, culturally what works in one part of Germany is not going to work in another, and we take this into account to make sure your content resonates. 

How do I know I'm working with a professional German translator or interpreter?

For all languages, 2M only engages translators and interpreters with 3+ years working in the field. Many 2M translators and interpreters are also NAATI-certified or hold country-specific certifications. This enables us to provide the best-suited linguists for any assignment.

2M strictly only assigns subject matter experts for technically advanced jobs. This is to ensure your content is expertly handled with care.

How do I book a German interpreter?

If you have never booked a German interpreter with us before, contact our project management team. We will set up a call to learn about your requirements and explain the process. If you require ongoing interpreting services or flexible over the phone or video remote options, our project team will set you up in our easy-to-use 2M lingo™ interpreting app. 

Does 2M offer a same-day service?

For personal documents to translate into or from German, we offer a 24-48 service after receiving the source documents. Large projects can also be serviced, however an urgency loading may apply. 

Urgent over the phone or video remote interpreting requests can be serviced via the 2M lingo app. Your job will be matched as soon as an interpreter fitting your criteria is available.

We service urgent and short translation requests on the 2M On Demand app in up to 60 minutes.
