Russian Deposition Interpreters – Video Remote Interpreters also available
During depositions, which involve the recorded questioning of a witness (deponent) before a trial, the accuracy of interpreting can be the difference between one outcome and another. For this reason, an interpreter needs to be highly skilled, have many years of experience and be familiar with legal and/or other relevant terminology.
TJC’s network of linguists includes professional Russian legal and court interpreters of the highest calibre, who can work with Russian language speaking witnesses in locations all over the globe. They are familiar with the procedure for depositions, as well as with legal terminology. Usually, They have specialist knowledge of the subject area of the case to ensure smooth communication during depositions, which can often be very taxing. Our Russian legal interpreters have worked for top global law firms in locations all over Italy and elsewhere in Europe and across the globe.
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.

One of the six official languages of the European Union, Russian is the most widely spoken native language in Europe, with native speakers numbering 144 million in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. It is also an official language in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. People from countries that were once part of the Soviet Union, such as Moldova, Latvia and Lithuania, also speak many Russian. However, in these nations, the language does not have official status.
The Russian language is a member of the Slavic family, including Polish, Bulgarian, Czech, Slovak and Croatian, among many others. A modern version of the Cyrillic (кириллица) alphabet, consisting of 33 letters, is used for written Russian. It is also possible to transliterate Russian words using the Latin alphabet when a Cyrillic keyboard is unavailable.
Surprisingly, Russian is the second most used language on the Internet after English, with 5.9% of all websites using this language.
What is a Deposition?
An Examination Before Trial, or Deposition, is an out-of-court testimony given by a witness (aka. a deponent) who answers questions put forward by attorneys for them to gather information in preparation for the trial as part of the discovery process. Although depositions fall into the category “hearsay” (a statement which cannot be used as evidence, offered to prove the truth of whatever it asserts), there are some circumstances where what is said at a deposition may be admissible at trial. These include when a witness is unavailable for trial, in which case their statement at a deposition is read onto the record. When a witness directly contradicts the information given at the deposition during the trial, in which case, the deposition statement can be used to refresh the witness’s memory.
The court is not involved in a deposition, and it takes place out of a courtroom. The only parties present are the deponent, attorneys, someone to administer oaths and possibly a stenographer/court reporter (although many depositions are now recorded electronically) and/or an interpreter if the witness’s first language is not English, and often even if the witness speaks English to a good standard but not fluently, to avoid any confusion.
Recently, the number of non-English speaking witnesses has increased rapidly, which means interpreters are in much demand for this vital part of the legal process. Given the vital importance of depositions, interpreters must be experienced, professional and adhere to judicial protocol.
