Given the vital applications of biotechnology and the depth of the research which takes place in this field, global interest is bound to be generated. Expert interpreters and translators will often be required to facilitate international research collaborations and conferences as well as for meetings and projects between academic institutes and companies involved in the biotechnology industry. It is also necessary to make the breakthroughs that take place accessible to a global audience via the international media.
For this reason, it is vital that no meaning is lost in correspondence between companies and researchers, to ensure that all specifications and agreements are fully understood by all parties. At TJC Global, our translators and interpreters have the technical language expertise in a host of different biotechnological areas, ensuring precise, well-informed and professional language assistance whatever the context or document.
Biotechnology can be broadly defined as the application of life sciences to the development of commercial products which can improve our standard of life. Primarily, it is concerned with modifying living organisms for human purposes and overlaps with fields like bioengineering, biomedical engineering, immunology, genetic engineering and cell and tissue cuture technologies. Its main applications can be catagorised into four major industrial areas: the medical/pharmaceutical industry; crop production and agriculture; industrial crop production for other non food products and environmental uses. It has lead to the development of genetically modified crops to improve yield and nutritional value, biodegradable materials and biofuels and has been used to full advantage in the medical sector, for the creation of synthetic insulin, antibiotics, biopharmaceuticals and plant made pharmaceuticals. It is also credited with designing breakthrough therapies to treat cancers, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis and cardiovascular problems.
Video / videoconference interpreting is a practical
alternative to meetings and presentations that cannot be held in person. Like telephone conferencing, virtual meetings or video remote conferencing enables participation in presentations and conferences by people located anywhere in the world. In addition to this, video conferencing allows attendees to see one another, as well as share visual aids such as documents and PowerPoint presentations.
By participating in your video conference, our professionally qualified interpreters can interpret remotely to facilitate smooth communication between all parties, in whichever language pairing you require.
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 useful for clients who cannot travel to their counterparts' country, but still wish, for example, to hold business discussions or to communicate progress updates. At TJC Global, we are very happy to provide you with professionally qualified interpreters around the world in almost any selected language combinations.
is used for international conferences, critical business discussions, seminars & symposiums. In this case, there are usually two to three interpreters situated in a booth, away from the audience, who take turns to interpret at high speed, changing over every 15-20 minutes to avoid fatigue.
The interpreters use headsets to listen to the message of the speaker and repeat it immediately (practically "simultaneously") in the target language for the benefit of relevant audience members.
Consecutive interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI)) is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. 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.
