Court Interpreters | Court Interpreting Services
Video / Phone Remote Interpreting also available
Our qualified court interpreters can assist with all types of cases. They have many years of experience working in this pressured environment and an extensive command of legal vocabulary.
As we only employ native speakers, in addition to accurate and professional interpreting, TJC Global court interpreters are aware of subtle nuances, cultural slang and colloquialisms, adjusting their interpretation accordingly. Our court interpreters assist court cases of varied lengths, providing both short- and long-term support.
TJC court interpreters also work outside of court, in areas such as depositions, witness preparation, meetings between attorneys, solicitors, barristers and clients and interviews with court personnel. In our 30 years providing court interpreting services, we have worked closely with many solicitors, barristers, attourneys and other legal professionals.
What is court interpreting?
When court proceedings involve parties or witnesses who do not speak the local language, court interpreters are essential. Unlike at international conferences, court interpreters do not work in a booth with a headset. They often have to interpret for speakers who are nervous and less articulate than normal because of the pressure of the court environment, adding to the demands of the interpreter’s job. These pressures mean court interpreters may ask the judge for a break in the middle of proceedings. Example: Royal Courts of Justice
What forms of interpretation can TJC Global provide for business?
Video/videoconference interpreting: (also Video Remote Interpreting 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. O r 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. T e 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 worldwide 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, 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 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, technical meetings, medical or court hearings or onsite inspections. T e 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.
