In such an ethnically diverse city, language support may be required in a number of settings. TJC Global can provide experienced and specialised Mandarin interpreters, Cantonese interpreters, Taiwanese interpreters, Japanese interpreters, German interpreters, Portuguese interpreters in Vancouver, to name a few.
Vancouver has always been a truly multi-cultural city, with speakers of English as a second language residents outnumbering those of English-speaking origin. It has a large Chinese community, and historically received an influx of residents from Asia, including from Japan and the Philippines, and Europe, including Germany and Portugal.
The city is the centre of the Canadian film industry, often known as the “Hollywood of the North” but is also a large Canadian industrial centre. Vancouver’s port is the largest and busiest in Canada. Forestry and tourism account for a large proportion of Vancouver’s income.
Simultaneous interpreting most often involves two interpreters as the work can be very mentally tiring. Located in a booth, the interpreters listen to the speaker via a headset and interpret into a microphone simultaneously. This is the form of interpreting used during UN meetings, and is often available at international conferences. It is also usually only in one language direction.
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 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.
