Interpreting and translations are two main tasks we are dealing with at London Translation Services. Before we move any further let’s define interpreting.
What is interpreting?
Many people often confuse these two terms: interpreting and translating. Although the end result of both actions is the same i.e. utterance rendered from the source language into target one, the process of conveying undergoes differently. Interpreting is converting orally one’s words into another language whereas translating is converting in written form from a language into another.
When to use an Interpreter?
There are many situations that an interpreter should be used for instance, if you need to attend a conference or a business meeting and you do not know the language of speakers then you will need an interpreter. When you have a document or a leaflet to be rendered from one language into another then you should look for a translator.
Interpreting is a very demanding task. According to linguist’s estimations there are around 5,000 – 6,000 languages in the world. Thanks to interpreters, who constitute a bridge linking people of different origins and cultural backgrounds, we are able to communicate with any person on the globe we want.
Not sure if you need an interpreter?
Sometimes we know the basics of a foreign language and are able to communicate on a non-professional level with our business partners, clients or friends from abroad but in case of various formal situations it is better to rely on well qualified interpreters, thanks to them through who the communication between parties will always go smoothly and problem-free.
