About Toronto

Located on the northernwest shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and is considered the country’s financial capital. Approximately 5.1 million people live in the urban area. Almost half of the inhabitants in Toronto are foreign born, with English, Chinese, Irish and Scottish among the top ranking ethnicities. Over 100,000 people immigrate to the Greater Toronto Area every year, perhaps due to the high quality of life, Toronto ranks consistently as one of the world’s most liveable cities.

Despite its short history – stretching back only until the early 19th century, Toronto is a extrmemly well-developed city, rich in cultural attractions, including theatres and concert halls. It also boasts a diverse architectural landscape.

It is also an international centre for business and finance. The city is home to the seventh largest stock exchange: the Toronto Stock Exchange, and boasts a large number of banks and brokerage firms.  Along with finance and business services, Toronto’s economy is driven by a broad range of industries. From media, arts, publishing and film production to aerospace, engineering, telecommunications and information technology, from education to medical research.

Although the Toronto harbour was once a large industrial hub, today much of the region's industry and manufacturing is based outside the city.  


What forms of interpretation can TJC Global provide in Toronto?

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

  • Simultaneous interpreting is most commonly used at conferences. It involves two interpreters working in partnership in a booth. They listen to the speaker via a headset and interpret into a microphone for the relevant audience members to listen to via headphones. As this can be very demanding, the interpreters take turns, swapping every 15-20 minutes.  

  • Consecutive interpreting is used in a wide variety of settings, including business meetings, discussions, court cases, hearings and factory visits, and is thus the most commonly requested form of interpreting. The interpreter first listens to the speaker and then subsequently interprets the meaning to the listener/s. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver the translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences during 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.
