Civil Engineering Translators & Interpreters

Civil Engineers play a vital role in the modern world and larger projects are often multi-national and multi-lingual.

At TJC Global, we can provide experienced and qualified translators for texts such as plans, instruction manuals, reports, research and contracts, as well as interpreters for meetings, negotiations and other relevant conference forums in this field.

What sets us apart is that in addition to being gifted linguists, our translators and interpreters are specialists in the field of civil engineering, and are thus informed of the technical terminology required for precise and reliable interpreting/translations.

Similarly, their familiarity with the subtle cultural nuances of your target language ensures smooth and meaningful communication between all parties, resulting in efficient communication and a successful partnership whatever your needs.

About Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering comprises the design, construction and maintenance of public sites such as roads, bridges, dams, canals and buildings as well as the application of important engineering principles to all types of residential, commercial, industrial and public works. These engineers fix and serve projects within their given site; designing things like drainage, pavements, water supply, sewer services, electric and communications supplies, and land divisions, as well as preparing plans and visiting sites.

Two significant sub-disciplines of this important field are environmental engineering and structural engineering. The former being the use of engineering technology and solutions to protect and sustain the environment, while the latter is concerned with constructing buildings so they are able to withstand external forces such as heavy wind, earthquakes or traffic.

What forms of interpretation can TJC Global provide?

Video / videoconference interpreting: (also Video Remote Interpreting available) TJC provide language interpreting services to support events such as business discussions, conferences, legal / court / arbitration / litigation, and all other online business interactions in industry during these challenging times.

Participants can communicate with one another 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, so as 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 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.

Simultaneous interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI))

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.
