About San Francisco

With a population of around 4.5 million in the metropolitan area, San Francisco is the 14th most populous city in the United States. It is the financial, commercial and cultural centre of north California, and is renowned for being a city of cultural diversity, liberal outlook, rights activism and all round openness and tolerance. It was the city which gave rise to “hippie” culture after the war and has since been the centre of the gay rights movement and the summer of love.

The city is truly multi-cultural with almost half of the population with a mother tongue other than English. 

The San Francisco economy is driven by the service sector, with financial services and tourism significant industries. High technology is also becoming an increasingly more important industry in San Francisco.  

Our interpreting services also cover the following cities in the USA

We are happy to cover other cities and local areas in the USA.

What form/s of interpretation can TJC Global provide in San Francisco, California, USA?

Image and video hosting by TinyPicSimultaneous interpreting 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.


Image and video hosting by TinyPicConsecutive interpreting 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.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicFacilitating interpreting is used to assist clients who require only limited assistance in the source language.

They may need technical or especially complex terminology to be interpreted into their native tongue  to avoid misunderstandings but are in general comfortable listening and speaking to the source language without aid. The interpreter stands by to support the client when he/she requires communication assistance.  

Image and video hosting by TinyPicTelephone interpreting allows parties who are not able to meet in person to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the language gap via the telephone.

Sometimes the interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also remotely located.
