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.

5. About Depositions
Commonly used in the law of the United States and Canada, depositions, also known in some states as Examinations Before Trials, are out-of court oral testimonies made by witnesses as a means of gathering information for later use in court or as part of the litigation discovery process. During the deposition, the witness/witnesses are asked questions by the litigators (attorneys) which they must answer under oath. No judge is present and the court is not involved in this process. The witness(es)’ testimony is recorded by either a stenographer or electronic recording device and may be called upon in court.
When a witness does not speak English as their first language, interpreters are required to bridge any communication difficultues. Given the vital importance of depositions in the litigation process, interpreters used in depositions must be experienced, professional and adhere to judicial protocol. They must have a thorough knowledge of “legalese” and any relevant industry terminology, as well as a thorough grasp of the nuances and idiosyncracies of both languages as questions are often challenging and/or subtle. Due to the recent increase in non-English speaking witnesses, highly-skilled deposition interpreters are now even more in demand. TJC can guarantee deposition interpreters of the highest calibre, with many years experience in this type of work and the competence to ensure clarity, precision and utmost discretion.
6. About Lisbon
Lisbon is the capital and largest city of Portugal, and the most westerly city in Europe. Perhaps surprisingly, it is also one of the oldest cities in the world – predating even Rome – with roots in the Neolithic era.
Today, Lisbon is the seat of the Portuguese government, and the country’s economic, commercial and cultural centre. Around 3 million people live in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area; this is around 27% of the total population of Portugal.
Lisbon is one of the most important ports in Europe, transporting both goods and passengers from its shores to locations across the world. The city is also very wealthy. It alone generates 45% of Portugal’s GDP. Dominated economically by the service sector, Lisbon is an important financial centre in Europe and is home to the Euronext Lisbon stock exchange.
The suburbs of the city are industrialised with automobile manufacturing, oil refineries and textile mills among the industries represented.
The city of Lisbon is rich in education and culture. Two universities and a number of higher education institutions attract thousands of students to the city. While the range of architectural styles represented here along with numerous museums, galleries, festivals and events attract visitors from all over the world.
Lisbon hosted the World Expo in 1998 and has remained a popular destination for conferences and trade fairs.
