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.
Simultaneous 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.
Consecutive 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.
Facilitating 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.
Telephone 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.
