With a population of around 512,000, Antwerp is the second-most populous city in Belgium after its capital, Antwerp. It is part of the Flemish (or Dutch) speaking region in the north of Belgium. Located on the river Scheldt which leads to the North Sea, Antwerp has a long maritime history. Discovered by settlers in around 2/3AD, the city had by the 16th century become Europe’s economic centre for trade and culture. Its prosperity was stalled when, at the end of the Thirty Years War in 1648, the river Scheldt was closed to all except Dutch ships, and Antwerp’s trade moved to Amsterdam. Napolean brought the city back to life at the end of the 18th century, and Antwerp was, by the mid 19th century, the world’s third-largest seaport after London and New York.
Today its docks are an important centre for the petrochemical industry. Currently housing five oil refineries, these docks are also home to many related industries, including four nuclear power stations. There are also plans for a wind farm to be built here.
The Belgian city is also renowned for its relationship with the diamond trade. Since 1447, diamonds have been handled, cut and polished in Antwerp: the art of diamond polishing itself having been invented here. Nowadays, over 80% of the world’s rough diamonds go through Antwerp, making it one of its most sparkling trade centres.

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.
