German is the official language of Germany, and one of the twenty-three languages of the European Union. Native speakers number almost 100 million, with approximately 80 million speaking it as a second language. It is closely related to English, Dutch and Frisian languages, and uses the twenty-six letters of the Latin alphabet plus three vowels with umlauts (also called diaeresis): ä, ö, ü, in addition to the "Scharfes 'S'" or "eszet": ß. German is also spoken in Austria, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein, some parts of Italy, and is one of the four main languages of Switzerland, the others being French, Italian and Romansh. Of course, in these countries, accents can be strong and Swiss German is well known for being relatively unintelligible to speakers of standard German.
There are also various German dialects within Germany, tracing back to the different German tribes, many of which demonstrate substantial differences in lexicon, phonology and syntax to standard or "High German". People from Bavaria (one of the Southern "Länder"), for instance, often have very different words for things than those in general use; while "Plattdeutsch" aka "Plattdüütsch" or "Low German" is a language of its own, traditionally spoken in the Northern counties of Germany, which uses an orthography similar to Dutch.
If you require language services for a specific German dialect, i.e. anything other than High German, please do not hesitate contact us. We will always do our very best to fulfil your requirements.
Simultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership. They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes.
Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.
Consecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, 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. 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.
The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
