What form/s of interpretation can TJC Global provide in Nairobi?

TJC Global offers many different types of interpreting services in Nairobi. The main four are simultaneous, consecutive, facilitating and telephone interpretation:

  • 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. It is used during meetings involving parties speaking different languages such as business and commercial discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, factory visits and court hearings. Interpreters listen first and then give the interpretation afterwards. For speeches, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they must deliver the 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.
