Image and video hosting by TinyPicTJC Global has an extensive network of arbitration interpreters based all over the world, covering over 80 languages

It is crucial that information is clearly and correctly conveyed during arbitration proceedings. Our arbitration interpreters are among the best in the field. They have many years' experience working in an arbitration setting and an extensive command of legal vocabulary. We work to select interpreters with expertise in the specific field or industry associated with the case. Their knowledge of industry-specific terminology means language barriers never become an obstacle to arbitration proceedings - a setting in which effective communication is of paramount importance. 

TJC Global can also provide interpreting assistance in other legal settings such as court hearings, depositions, witness preparation, meetings between attorneys, solicitors, barristers and clients and interviews with court personnel. 

In our 30 years providing legal interpreting services, we have worked closely with many solicitors, barristers, attourneys and other legal professionals.

Interpreting forms we offer:

Image and video hosting by TinyPicConsecutive Interpreting 

Consecutive interpreting is the most common form of interpreting used in court. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and subsequently delivers the meaning in the target language. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. 


Image and video hosting by TinyPicSimultaneous Interpreting

This form of interpretation is usually delivered by two interpreters from inside a booth. They listen to the speaker (in the source language) through a headset and simultaneously interpret the speech into the target language via a microphone, swapping every 15 - 20 minutes to avoid fatigue. 

What is arbitration? 

Arbitration hearings are for many, a quicker, more cost-effective and less confrontational approach than standard litigation for the resolution of commercial and business disputes. Often, important business ties can be preserved after arbitrations and opposing parties are able to work together towards the final decision, which is made by an arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators who are specialists in the subject matter of the case, employed by the parties as a neutral body. Within 30 days, the chief arbitrator will decide upon an arbitration award: a legal document enforeable in a court. 

There are two different forms of arbitration: binding and non-binding. In binding arbitration, parties must agree to abide by the decision of the arbitrator. While in non-binding arbotration, the process is used to help establish an advisory opinion - which the opposing parties may or may not abide by. Arbitrations follow the evidential and procedural regularity of court proceedings but take place out of court, in a less formal and less rigorous setting than litigation.

Arbitration differs from mediation in one key aspect. An arbitrator must remain neutral but in the end, using his/her own expertise and knowledge of the subject, come to an decision as to who is right. A mediator must only assist the parties themselves come to a reconciliation or agreement with no judgement. Although a mediation settlement is also legally enforceable.
