Spanish Deposition interpreters

Deposition interpreters for English to Spanish, Spanish to English and multiple other languages in locations all over the world

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 Spanish legal and court interpreters of the highest calibre, who are able to work with Spanish language speaking witnesses in locations all over the globe. They are familiar with the procedure for depositions, as well as with legal terminology, and usually have specialist knowledge of the subject area of the case to ensure smooth communication during depositions.

What forms of interpretation can TJC Global provide?

Video / videoconference interpreting: (also Video Remote Interpreting available) TJC provide language interpreting services to support events such as business discussions, conferences, legal / court / arbitration / litigation, and all other online business interactions in industry during these challenging times.

Participants can communicate with one another 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, so as 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 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.

Simultaneous interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI))

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.

About Spanish

With 406 million native speakers and 60 million people who speak it as a second language, Spanish is the second most widely spoken language worldwide after Mandarin Chinese. It is the official or de facto language of 20 countries, including many in Central and South America, in addition to the European country of Spain – where it originated. Like French and Italian, Spanish is a Romance language, deriving from the common Latin spoken in Iberia before and during the 5th century.

Spanish uses the Latin alphabet with the addition of “ñ”, and luckily, once a learner understands the way in which letters sound in Spanish, all words can be pronounced according to spelling. The language has recently overtaken French as the most common second language, after English, taught in schools.

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 in order for them to gather information in preparation for the trial as part of the discovery process. Although depositions fall into the catagory “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 admissable at trial. These include when a witness is unavailable for trial, in which case their statement at deposition is read onto record, and 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 court room. 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 used in depositions must be experienced, professional and adhere to judicial protocol.
