Whatever your event or project in Birmingham, TJC's specialist interpreters are on hand to assist with any language barriers that may occur. Our Birmingham interpreters are not only fluent in the source and target languages but also have a background in the particular sector or subject area you require. This ensures technical or branch-specific terminology is conveyed accurately, and communication is glitch-free.
Birmingham is the second most populous city in the UK with over 1 million residents. Situated in the West Midlands, a region historically renowned as a centre for commerce and industry, Birmingham is nowadays a truly global metropolis.
A hub for transport, events, commerce, culture, retail and higher education (the city has six universities), it is not surprising to discover that Birmingham has the largest metropolitan economy in the UK outside Birmingham. Nor that it is an attractive place to hold business meetings, conventions and international conferences in a huge range of fields.
TJC's interpreters in Birmingham cover over 100 languages in dialects in a huge range of fields, from public sector to science, industry and manufacturing to social care.
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 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.
