What form/s of interpretation can TJC Global provide?
Video / videoconference interpreting: Video Remote Interpreting is especially useful for online virtual discussions when participants do not speak a common language. Video Remote Interpreting can be used for conference calls, virtual trainings, legal consultations, or interactions related to any other matter or industry. Participants can communicate with each other via video or voice calls using laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. For the purpose of taking minutes, these calls can be recorded. Video Remote Interpreting also reduces logistical costs.
Our professionally qualified interpreters will join the specific setting you require - whether this be a business meeting, event or legal proceeding - and interpret remotely in order to facilitate smooth communication between all parties, a language pairing you require.
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 useful for clients who cannot travel to their counterparts' country, but still wish, for example, to hold business discussions or to communicate progress updates. At TJC Global, we are very happy to provide you with professionally qualified interpreters around the world in almost any selected language combinations.
is used for international conferences, critical business discussions, seminars & symposiums. In this case, there are usually two to three interpreters 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 message of the speaker and repeat it immediately (practically "simultaneously") in the target language for the benefit of relevant audience members.
Consecutive interpreting(also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI))is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site 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.
TJC interpreters have earned the trust of hundreds of international law firms, governmental institutions, private companies and many other organisations. To find out more about our previous clients, please click here.

With approximately 220 million native speakers worldwide, Portuguese is a truly global language. Spoken in Portugal, it is also the sole official language of Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe and has co-official status in Macau and East Timor, meaning speakers are widely distributed across several continents, including Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. According to a UNESCO survey, Portuguese is, along with its Spanish cousin, the fastest growing European language and takes its place as the seventh most spoken language in the world after Bengali. It comprises several dialects and sub-dialects, and there are two recognised standards in the world, European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese.
Brazilian Portuguese is quite different to that spoken in Europe, mostly due to phonetic differences, although they share a standardised spelling.
Portuguese is a Romance language like French and Italian but has many lexical differences which mean it is not mutually intelligible with these. It belongs specifically to the West-Iberian group of Romance languages like Spanish. This link allows it to be partially understandable to Spanish speakers. Like Spanish, it uses 26 letters of the Latin alphabet but includes more diacritics - 6 in total. These are necessary as Portuguese comprises a larger phonetic range than Spanish - something which can cause problems when Spanish & Portuguese speakers try to communicate.
