Tribunals Interpreter Services in Multiple Languages

Professional Tribunals Interpreting Services Worldwide

The definition of ‘Tribunal’ varies from country to country but is often applied to private judicial bodies or institutions with the authority to make judgements about civil claims and disagreements. Sometimes legal arbitration proceedings are entitled ‘Arbitral Tribunals.’

In England and Wales, tribunals are quasi-judicial bodies with clear statutory underpinning. For example, the employment tribunal is a body that convenes to adjudicate employment disputes; often relating to unfair dismissal; equal pay; whistleblowing and discrimination.

However, it would be incorrect to assume that Tribunals primarily deal with employment disputes. The Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007, had a significant effect upon the tribunal structure within England and Wales. Firstly, it organised the tribunal system into something resembling a contemporary judicial system: including an Upper Tier Tribunal to function as an appellate court from decisions of the First-Tier Tribunal. At present, tribunals deal with a wide range of disputes: from commercial tax disputes between companies and HMRC to immigration appeals against decisions of the Home Office. In terms of number of cases, the tribunal system deals with more per annum, than the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court combined.

Moreover, the increasing spread of labour, and the global influence of companies whose employees originate from all over the world, mean that tribunals have become increasingly international. As such, there is a growing need and demand for linguistic support.

TJC Global’s tribunal interpreter services provide a precise, efficient and professional tribunal interpreting service, ensuring that language barriers do not impede the exchange of crucial information. We can provide interpreters for tribunal hearings and cases of all kinds.

What forms of interpretation can TJC Global provide for business in the Middle East?

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. Our 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. The 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’ country but still wish, for example, to hold business discussions or communicate progress updates. At TJC Global, we are pleased to provide you with 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. The 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.
