Liaison interpreting services
We’ll be your voice over short distances
If you need to get your message across in a sales visit, technical meeting or one-to-one event, our escort interpreting services can help you. We offer liaison interpreting, where the translator sits or stands with the speakers, as well as interpreting by sworn translators, which is ideal for administrative procedures such as legal trials or documents executed before a notary.
With escort interpreting, it’s essential for the interpreter to be not only completely fluent in the language of the speakers, but also perfectly familiar with the non-verbal language (gestures, greetings, etc.) of both cultures. CPSL can provide you with professional translators who specialise in this sort of interpreting, as well as official or sworn interpreters certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Spain, or by equivalent bodies in other countries.
In whispered interpreting, or ‘chuchotage’, the interpreter translates what is being said from a language that most of the people present understand. The speaker and the participants speak normally, without any pauses, and the interpreter translates what is being said in the meeting for the client, using a soft voice or whisper. Occasionally, the interpreter also translates the client’s words for the other people present. For whispered interpreting, the interpreter must be a native speaker of the same language as the client and have a perfect understanding of the language that the event is being held in. Whispered interpreting is used in meetings, interviews, conferences and, in general, events attended by a speaker and an audience who share the same language, which is different to that spoken by the client.
