Conference interpreters: English to German, German to English and other multiple languages
With German expertise deployed in so many fields and with so many high-quality conference venues and exhibition halls scattered across German-speaking nations, there are hundreds of conferences which require the help of German language expert interpreters.
TJC Global can provide German translators and interpreters with expertise in the sector you are working in. TJC's German conference Interpreters offer conference interpreting services of the highest quality for a wide variety of industries.
In addition to expertise in the subject of the conference, our professional German conference interpreters have an in-depth understanding of both the source and target languages. This enables TJC’s German conference interpreters to be highly accurate when it comes to interpreting industry-specific terminology, while at the same time translating the relevant idiomatic characteristics of the required languages.
Two forms of interpreting are required at conferences and TJC Global is happy to provide experienced and specialised interpreters for both requests:
Simultaneous interpreting: This kind of interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership. They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members. Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.
Consecutive interpreting: In this case, one interpreter is usually sufficient and will be asked to assist during things like panel discussions, Q&A (Question & Answer) sessions or in situations in which an organisation wishes to speak face-to-face with other exhibiting businesses who are set up in stalls around the conference room. For this kind of interpretation, the interpreter is more likely to interpret two-ways to facilitate conversation between parties.
German is the official language of Germany, and one of the twenty-three languages of the European Union. Native speakers number almost 100 million, with approximately 80 million speaking it as a second language. It is closely related to English, Dutch and Frisian languages, and uses the twenty-six letters of the Latin alphabet plus three vowels with umlauts (also called diaeresis): ä, ö, ü, in addition to the "Scharfes 'S'" or "eszet": ß. German is also spoken in Austria, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein, some parts of Italy, and is one of the four main languages of Switzerland, the others being French, Italian and Romansh. Of course, in these countries, accents can be strong and Swiss German is well known for being relatively unintelligible to speakers of standard German.
There are also various German dialects within Germany, tracing back to the different German tribes, many of which demonstrate substantial differences in lexicon, phonology and syntax to standard or "High German". People from Bavaria (one of the Southern "Länder"), for instance, often have very different words for things than those in general use; while "Plattdeutsch" aka "Plattdüütsch" or "Low German" is a language of its own, traditionally spoken in the Northern counties of Germany, which uses an orthography similar to Dutch.
If you require language services for a specific German dialect, i.e. anything other than High German, please do not hesitate contact us. We will always do our very best to fulfil your requirements.
