About Singapore

Singapore is an island country in Southeast Asia consisting of 63 islands, including the main island, Singapore Island (or Pulau Ujong in Malay). Singapore a truly multicultural city with around 2 million of its 5.4 million inhabitants foreign-born. It has a majority Chinese population, with smaller but significant Malay and Indian populations.  English, Malay, Mandarin, and Tamil constitute the four official languages of the country with Mandarin spoken as the native language by the most people.

One of the original Four Asian Tigers, Singapore is a global hub for finance, trade and manufacturing. It is the fourth most important financial centre in the world, with a container port ranked as within the five busiest in the world. Thanks to the low tax, developed infrastructure and lack of corruption in the country, Singapore attracts a large amount of foreign investment. The offices of around 7000 multinational corporations have established offices here. 


What form/s of interpretation can TJC Global provide in Singapore?

TJC Global offers many different types of interpreting services in Singapore. The main four are simultaneous, consecutive, facilitating and telephone interpretation:

  • Simultaneous interpreting is most commonly used at conferences. It involves two interpreters working in partnership in a booth. They listen to the speaker via a headset and interpret into a microphone for the relevant audience members to listen to via headphones. As this can be very demanding, the interpreters take turns, swapping every 15-20 minutes.  

  • 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. Sometimes the interpreter is present in one of the two locations, sometimes he/she is located somewhere apart from both parties. Telephone interpreting involves assistance in both language directions.
