What form/s of interpretation can TJC Global provide?
Video / videoconference interpreting: Video Remote Interpreting is especially useful for online virtual discussions when participants do not speak a common language. Video Remote Interpreting can be used for conference calls, virtual trainings, legal consultations, or interactions related to any other matter or industry. Participants can communicate with each other via video or voice calls using laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. For the purpose of taking minutes, these calls can be recorded. Video Remote Interpreting also reduces logistical costs.
Our professionally qualified interpreters will join the specific setting you require - whether this be a business meeting, event or legal proceeding - and interpret remotely in order to facilitate smooth communication between all parties, a language pairing you require.
Telephone / teleconference interpreting is a practical way to bridge any language barriers. The interpreter is either located remotely (away from either party) or is with one of the parties. In both cases they deliver interpreting services through telephone conferencing.
Telephone interpretation is useful for clients who cannot travel to their counterparts' country, but still wish, for example, to hold business discussions or to communicate progress updates. At TJC Global, we are very happy to provide you with professionally qualified interpreters around the world in almost any selected language combinations.
Simultaneous interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI))
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 (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI)) is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial, 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. 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 stand or elsewhere.

5. About Depositions
Commonly used in the law of the United States and Canada, depositions, also known in some states as Examinations Before Trials, are out-of court oral testimonies made by witnesses as a means of gathering information for later use in court or as part of the litigation discovery process. During the deposition, the witness/witnesses are asked questions by the litigators (attorneys) which they must answer under oath. No judge is present and the court is not involved in this process. The witness(es)' testimony is recorded by either a stenographer or electronic recording device and may be called upon in court.
When a witness does not speak English as their first language, interpreters are required to bridge any communication difficultues. Given the vital importance of depositions in the litigation process, interpreters used in depositions must be experienced, professional and adhere to judicial protocol. They must have a thorough knowledge of "legalese" and any relevant industry terminology, as well as a thorough grasp of the nuances and idiosyncracies of both languages as questions are often challenging and/or subtle. Due to the recent increase in non-English speaking witnesses, highly-skilled deposition interpreters are now even more in demand. TJC can guarantee deposition interpreters of the highest calibre, with many years experience in this type of work and the competence to ensure clarity, precision and utmost discretion.
6. About Antwerp
With a population of around 512,000, Antwerp is the second most populous city in the country of Belgium after its capital, Antwerp. It is part of the Flemish (or Dutch) speaking region in the north of Belgium. Located on the river Scheldt which leads to the North Sea, Antwerp has a long maritime history. Discovered by settlers in around 2/3AD, the city had by the 16th century, become Europe's economic centre for trade and culture. Its prosperity was stalled when, at the end of the Thirty Years War in 1648, the river Scheldt was closed to all except Dutch ships and Antwerp's trade moved to Amsterdam. Napolean brought the city back to life at the end of the 18th century and Antwerp was, by the mid 19th century, the world's third largest seaport after London and New York.
Today its docks are an important centre for the petrochemical industry. Currently housing five oil refineries, these docks are also home to a number of related industries, including four nuclear power stations. There are also plans for a wind farm to be built here.
The Belgian city is also renowned for its relationship with the diamond trade. Since 1447, diamonds have been handled, cut and polished in Antwerp: the art of diamond polishing itself having been invented here. Nowadays, over 80% of the world's rough diamonds go through Antwerp making it one of the world's most sparkling trade centres.
