With a population of close to 3 million, Amman is the capital and largest city of Jordan, and one of the most important economic, commercial and cultural hubs in the Middle East. Despite its ever increasing modernity, Amman is actually one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Excavations reveal it was established in the Stone Age and has carried many names. In the Old Testament it is referred to as “Rabbath-Ammon” and "the City of Waters". Under the Greek Macedonians (4th century BC), it was renamed “Philadelphia” or “The Brotherhood Love” in Greek. The city succumbed to Roman rule in 106AD as part of the Decapolis League and many archaeological sites still remain. Architecture surviving from the era includes the Roman Theatre, Forum and Temple of Hercules which sits atop the Citadel Hill of Amman. The city has experienced unrivalled economic growth in recent years and is soon expected to overtake Dubai in terms of attracting foreign investment. It enjoys status as a regional base for numerous multinational organisations, including the Arab Bank, HSBC, Aramex and FedEx.
Amman receives the most medical tourists in the region and the 5th highest in the world – over 250,000 foreign patients every year. This brings over $1 billion annually.
Population: Greater Amman Area: 2,842,629 (2010)
Major Industries: Business; Foreign Investment; Information Technology; Banking.
Major companies based in Amman: ramex, Arab Bank, HSBC, Ernst and Young, FedEx, DHL, UPS, Standard Chartered, Societe Generale, Citibank, Maktoob, Rubicon Group Holding, Royal Jordanian Airlines.

Simultaneous interpreting 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 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.
Facilitating interpreting is used to assist clients who require only limited assistance in the source language.
They may need technical or especially complex terminology to be interpreted into their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings but are in general comfortable listening and speaking to the source language without aid. The interpreter stands by to support the client when he/she requires communication assistance.
Telephone interpreting allows parties who are not able to meet in person to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the language gap via the telephone.
Sometimes the interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also remotely located.
TJC Global provides specialist interpretation and translation services in a wide variety of locations. Whatever your requirement, we are happy to assist you with proffesional interpreters or translators. If the specific location in which you require interpreting services is not listed, please contact us directly.
