Our network of experienced interpreters working in multiple languages in and around the Doha region are ready to assist you whatever your business needs. With venues in Qatar set to host parts of the 2022 World Cup, in addition to the rapid expansion of the city, there are many reasons interpreters may be required in Doha.
As well as being the capital city of Qatar and seat of the government, Doha is the economic, media and educational centre of the country.
In recent years, Doha has experienced dramatic growth, both in terms of population and the economy. The city is now undergoing rapid development in transport and infrastructure.
Like Dubai, Doha was once a centre for the pearling industry. The discovery of oil in the 1930s transformed the area from poor to extremely wealthy in a number of years.
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 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 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.
