FAQ'S

  • What is the difference between translation and interpreting?

    Interpretation is an ORAL excise

    Translation is a WRITTEN exercise

    Simultaneous Interpretation

    The speaker´s voice is translated at the same time he or she is speaking. Participants listen through headsets.
    Commonly used for large meetings and multilingual events.
    Advantages of this method:
    - Speech is delivered without interruptions, retains the flow of the presentation.
    - Most efficient use of time: no additional time is required for the translation.
    - Not disruptive since the interpretation is heard only by those who choose to listen.
    - Most professional method, impressive to foreign delegations.

  • What is the difference between Simultaneous and Consecutive Interpretation?

    Consecutive Interpretation

    The speaker pauses every two or three sentences to allow time for the interpreter to translate the remarks. The interpreter needs to be in close proximity to the speaker and the participants. Commonly used for tours, receptions, during depositions, recorded statements and for witness testimony in the legal setting.

  • Why use professional interpreters?

    When holding a multilingual meeting it is essential to use a professional who understands not only the
    language and technical and cultural context, but also has the experience and qualifications necessary
    to do the job.Interpreters guarantee seamless communication across language barriers. Just knowing a language is not enough.
    Some of the requirements include:
    - Membership in professional organizations.
    - Knowledge and adherence to professional ethics, as interpreters and translators manage confidential and
    proprietary information on a daily basis.
    - Continued professional education and travel to the countries where their working languages are spoken,
    to keep up to date with changes in language and culture.

  • What kind of equipment do I need to have for my multilingual event?

    DTI has the latest electronic equipment for any multilingual meeting of any size and any number of
    language combinations.
    - Full size and table top sound booths
    - Relay equipped Interpreter consoles
    - FM/ Wireless equipment
