Dutch (aka. Flemish when spoken in Belgium) is a West Germanic language spoken primarily in the Netherlands and as one of the three official languages of Belgium alongside French and German. It is also used in an administrative capacity in those countries which historically comprised the “Netherland Antilles” including Suriname, the islands of Curaçao, Sint Maarten, Aruba, Bonaire, Saba, and Sint Eustatius. It is a close relative of Afrikaans, one of the official languages of South Africa, which is derived from Dutch. This is due to the presence of Dutch settlers in South Africa during the 18th and 19th centuries. It is estimated that 90 – 95% of Afrikaans is of Dutch origin and the two languages are often mutually intelligible, especially in written form.
Dutch is one of the official languages of the European Union and has approximately 23 million native speakers worldwide. Interestingly, it is thought to be the most easily attainable foreign language for native English speakers, probably due to similarities in origin and lexicon, although it is not currently one of the primary languages taught in English schools.
It originates from Low Franconian and its use can be dated back to the 12th century. In the Middle Ages, it was one of the languages of the people, hence its name – originally “Dietsc”, or “Duutsc”, equivalent to the German “Deutsch”, which means literally, “language of the people”. It was thus somewhat different from Latin which dominated religion and education.
As suggested, the Dutch bears many similarities to both German and English. In fact, 70% of the population of the Netherlands can speak fluent English and 55-59% of Dutch people also speak German!
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.
