What forms of interpreter services can TJC Global provide?
Video/videoconference interpreting: (also Video Remote Interpreting is available) TJC provides language interpreting services to support events such as business discussions, conferences, legal/court/arbitration/litigation, and other online business interactions in the industry during these challenging times.
Participants can communicate via video, or voice calls using laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. These can be recorded should you wish to take minutes. Our professionally qualified interpreters can join your online virtual meeting, event, or proceeding, for example, and interpret remotely in the language pairing you require to facilitate smooth communication between all parties.
Telephone/teleconference interpreting is a practical way to bridge any language barriers. The interpreter is either located remotely (away from either party) or is with one of the parties. In both cases, they deliver interpreting services through telephone conferencing.
Telephone interpretation is helpful for clients who cannot travel to their counterparts’ countries but still wish, for example, to hold business discussions or communicate progress updates. At TJC Global, we are pleased to provide professionally qualified interpreters in almost any selected language combination.
Simultaneous interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI))
is used for international conferences, critical business discussions, seminars & symposiums. In this case, two to three interpreters are usually situated in a booth, away from the audience, and take turns to interpret at high speed, changing over every 15-20 minutes to avoid fatigue.
The interpreters use headsets to listen to the speaker’s message and repeat it immediately (practically “simultaneously”) in the target language to benefit relevant audience members.
Consecutive interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI)) is the most common type. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial, legal and technical meetings, medical or court hearings, or onsite inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and later delivers the meaning in the target language.
The interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties – at a stand or elsewhere.
To talk of Greek as a single language is almost impossible. With a history spanning 34 centures, contemporary Greek is merely the result of centuries of a huge linguistic evolution spanning from Mycenean Greek to Ancient Greek to Biblical Greek. It has the longest recorded history of any Indo-European language and along with Latin, is one of the most culturally, intellectually and lexicographically important languages of the Western world. It is the language of Homer and Aristotle: the language of epic poetry and groundbreaking philosophy. With over 50,000 English words derived from it, its seminal significance is truly beyond measure.
Nowadays, what is known as “Modern” or “Roman Greek” is spoken by approximately 12 million people as a native language. It is the official language of both Greece and Cyprus and is also recognised as a minority language in a number of other Southern and Eastern European states. It is one of the 23 official languages of the European Union.
The phonological system of Modern Greek differs greatly from that of its Ancient ancestor. There now exist only 5 vowels – which is somewhat different to the multiple vowel heights, lengths that characterised Ancient Greek. There are 24 letters to the modern Greek alphabet, in addition to two diacritics: the acute accent and the diaeresis (aka. two dots above a vowel).
Minority languages are spoken by people in different geographic regions of Greece, for example the Arvanites are an Alanian-speaking group located in rural areas around Athens. In northern Greece, there are also some Slavic-speaking groups whose dialects can be classified as Macedonian or Bulgarian. Despite these small communities, Greek is spoken by almost the entire population.
Just like any other nation, Greece has its own business etiquette. See our Doing Business in Greece Page to find out more.
