Structural Engineering Translators & Interpreters

Video/Phone remote interpreting also available

The frequency of international collaborations between construction firms, engineers, architects and public organisations in this field mean that language assistance, in the form of translators and interpreters, is often required.

At TJC Global, we offer specialist Structural Engineering translation and interpreting services for texts of all natures as well as conferences, meetings and other events in this field.

What sets us apart is that in addition to being gifted linguists, our translators and interpreters have years of experience, and often a qualification in the field.

Their familiarity with the technical procedures and terminology relating to structural engineering, ensures smooth and meaningful communication between all parties, in turn essential to our clients’ success.

About Structural Engineering

Structural engineers design and plan structures able to withstand the forces to which they are subjected, ensuring constructions can support their own weight as well as endure external influences such as earthquakes and floods. It is not surprising then that any worker in this sector requires in-depth technical knowledge of all related fields to assure the safety of any new construction. In fact, the complexity of modern structures often requires a great deal of ingenuity from the engineer, particularly when incorporating new and innovative building materials and sustainable technologies into a project.

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.
