TJC Global Serving Since 1985
Whatever your event or project in Birmingham, TJC's specialist interpreters are on hand to assist with any language barriers that may occur. Our Birmingham interpreters are not only fluent in the source and target languages but also have a background in the particular sector or subject area you require. This ensures technical or branch-specific terminology is conveyed accurately, and communication is glitch-free.
TJC's interpreters in Birmingham cover over 100 languages in dialects in a huge range of fields, from public sector to science, industry and manufacturing to social care.
Birmingham is the second most populous city in the UK with over 1 million residents. Situated in the West Midlands, a region historically renowned as a centre for commerce and industry, Birmingham is nowadays a truly global metropolis.
A hub for transport, events, commerce, culture, retail and higher education (the city has six universities), it is not surprising to discover that Birmingham has the largest metropolitan economy in the UK outside Birmingham. Nor that it is an attractive place to hold business meetings, conventions and international conferences in a huge range of fields.
We are happy to cover other cities and local areas in United Kingdom.
Simultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership. They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes.
Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.
Consecutive interpreting is probably the most common type of interpreting and is widely used. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical or engineering 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. If a speech is delivered, 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 stall or elsewhere.
Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings. The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue.
Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
