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.

With approximately 220 million native speakers worldwide, Portuguese is a truly global language. Spoken in Portugal, it is also the sole official language of Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe and has co-official status in Macau and East Timor, meaning speakers are widely distributed across several continents, including Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. According to a UNESCO survey, Portuguese is, along with its Spanish cousin, the fastest growing European language and takes its place as the seventh most spoken language in the world after Bengali. It comprises several dialects and sub-dialects, and there are two recognised standards in the world, European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese.
Brazilian Portuguese is quite different to that spoken in Europe, mostly due to phonetic differences, although they share a standardised spelling.
Portuguese is a Romance language like French and Italian but has many lexical differences which mean it is not mutually intelligible with these. It belongs specifically to the West-Iberian group of Romance languages like Spanish. This link allows it to be partially understandable to Spanish speakers. Like Spanish, it uses 26 letters of the Latin alphabet but includes more diacritics – 6 in total. These are necessary as Portuguese comprises a larger phonetic range than Spanish – something which can cause problems when Spanish & Portuguese speakers try to communicate.
