Professional Onsite Interpretation

Multilingual Connections’ professional interpretation services bring our expert interpreters onsite to your meeting, training, conference, appointment or deposition.  Our goal is to provide a seamless experience for you, no matter what the language, industry or setting.

Two modes of onsite interpretation:          

Consecutive Interpretation

The client speaks in short sentences or paragraphs in the source language and then pauses so that the interpreter can interpret what has just been said into the target language.

Simultaneous Interpretation

With simultaneous interpretation, the interpreter provides real-time interpretation of what the speaker says into the target language, without a pause between segments. This mode of interpretation is highly demanding, so industry standard requires simultaneous interpreters to work in pairs and alternate to ensure accuracy and preserve the interpreters’ health. Simultaneous interpreters typically speak into a microphone from a booth, and the audience requiring interpretation use headsets.  For simultaneous interpretation, we provide booth set-up and equipment rental.

Examples

  • Corporate settings such as boardroom meetings, focus groups, factory and manufacturing-related tours, plant and machinery audits.
  • Conferences and trade shows
  • Educational settings, such as academic meetings and lectures
  • Government agencies foreign dignitary visits
  • Legal settings, such as trials, depositions, arbitrations, asylum and immigration hearings
  • Market research, including ethnographic interviews and focus groups
  • Healthcare settings, including hospitals, clinics, patients’ homes and other healthcare facilities
  • Insurance needs, such as Independent Medical Evaluation (IME), workers’ compensation hearings, employee benefits presentation and claim investigations

Face-to-face interpretation requires proper planning, advanced scheduling and a minimum number of hours.  For flexible interpretation with no minimum charges, our phone interpretation option is a great choice.

Multilingual Connections has done interview transcriptions and translation for our television commercials. Their speed is amazing, and it's great to know we can depend on the accuracy, especially when working with languages we don't speak natively. - Angle Park Film & Video

The team at Multilingual Connections delivers consistent quality each and every time. We had a crunch a few weeks ago to translate two very large documents into Spanish, and they delivered them with lightning speed and with perfect communication. We will continue to work closely with this friendly group for a long time! - Così

Multilingual Connections produced great quality work in a very short period of time. The transcriptions were very accurate and there were no errors related to local slang usage, something I had encountered with previous transcription companies. The timeliness of their work helped me complete my international research project on time. That’s no small feat! - University of Pennsylvania

Multilingual Connections helped us respond to an urgent RFP by translating 100+ pages of content into Spanish within a 3-day period. Given the global nature of our business, our communications materials are often required to be translated into multiple languages. I would definitely use them for our translation needs again. - Orbitz
