Mediation Interpreters | Mediation Interpreting Services Worldwide
Professional Mediation Interpreting Services in over 100 languages
Mediation, alongside arbitration, is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), which seeks to provide an out of court settlement for disputes between parties. Unlike arbitration, mediators do not pronounce a binding legal resolution, but rather attempt to mediate between parties and arrive at a negotiated settlement.
While mediation has been around for a long time, it is really only in the last decade that it has become a commonplace procedure for the resolution of commercial disputes. Although it is still, generally speaking, a consensual process, and parties cannot be forced into it, it is always a wise option to consider. This is for two reasons: (1.) mediation is usually a very effective way of settling a dispute; and (2.) in recent years, courts have imposed costs penalties on parties who, even if successful at trial, have unreasonably refused to mediate.
For mediation to be fully effective, parties must understand one another completely, which can be difficult if there are language barriers. At TJC Global, we offer interpreters with extensive interpreting experience and an in-depth knowledge of legal terminology, protocol and culture. We provide individually tailored interpreting services in order to cater for mediatory conferences of all natures and all contexts. It is not uncommon for our legal interpreters to possess a legal background themselves; and this, coupled with our own experience and expertise, ensures a satisfactory solution for all parties concerned.

What forms of interpretation does TJC Global provide?
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.
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.
Video / videoconference interpreting is a practical alternative for meetings/presentations that cannot be held in person. It allows attendees to see one another, as well as share visual aids, such as documents and powerpoint presentations. This is the key advantage video conferencing has over telephone conferencing, although both enable participation in presentations and conferences by people located anywhere in the world.
By participating in your video conference, our professionally qualified interpreters can interpret remotely to facilitate smooth communication between all parties, whichever language pairing you require.
