Telephone interpreting is cheaper and is less expensive than regular consecutive interpreting which requires the physical presence of an interpreter. Internet (Skype) telephone calls as well as special phone systems enable the interpreter to fully participate in a three way ongoing telephone conversation. By doing so, each speaker can use his/her mother tongue in a targeted, clear and unequivocal way. The conversation is rendered immediately by our interpreter on a consecutive basis.
Telephone interpreting requires particular skills since the interpreters have to continuously adapt to each new situation and have to react spontaneously to the propositions of the speaker.
Telephone interpreting is suitable for :
- Establishing initial contacts
- Routine coordination between parties
- Contract negotiations
- Travel arrangements
- Planning and progress reviews
- Matters of emergency
