Interpretation

Imagine... Your overseas client and his client want to meet your company’s representatives and tour your plant before they will sign the deal. Or... Representatives from 10 different countries have registered for your association’s annual conference. Or... You need to depose a witness who doesn’t speak English.

Whatever the scenario, it is clear that with so much at stake, you need to understand and be understood clearly. A "simple misinterpretation" can threaten a business deal, ruin a conference, or cause an entire case to be dismissed from court. Avoiding such catastrophes takes more than someone who just happens to speak two languages. Comprehensive Language Center provides more.

Our team will analyze your situation to help you determine the type of interpretation, the appropriate number of interpreters, and any equipment you may need, and will then assign the best qualified interpreters to your project.

Understanding Interpretation

We're ready for any event

With the Comprehensive Language Center, you can access the full range of interpretation services, wherever and whenever you need them. We provide interpretation services in three categories:

  • Conferences, Seminars, and Lectures
  • Legal, Medical, Business Meetings, and Negotiations
  • Site Visits, Tours, and Receptions

Conferences, Seminars, and Lectures

Simultaneous Interpretation: The interpretation of words as they are spoken, this approach is ideal for international conferences or any event involving multiple languages. Using state-of-the-art equipment, teams of two or three interpreters per language work in soundproof booths, while participants listen to the interpretation in their own language through wireless receivers.

Legal, Medical, Business Meetings, and Negotiations

Consecutive Interpretation: Performed at intervals in discourse, often after a few phrases, this is the preferred approach for small groups or short, formal presentations. It gives participants greater mobility and eases the flow of communication.

Site Visits, Tours, and Receptions

Escort Interpretation: A style of precise paraphrasing, this technique is best for conversing at less formal occasions, such as receptions, tours, and site visits.

An Unmatched History

Our past experience is your future success

Our interpretation experience is quite extensive. The following are just some of the examples.

We provided a team of fifty-two interpreters to support the Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish requirements of the US Department of State’s “Pathbreaking Strategies in the Global Fight Against Sex Trafficking” conference. This five-day event was created by an act of congress. It was attended by high-ranking officials from around the world.

We managed a team of 12 interpreters covering six languages in support of the US Air Force Centennial of Flight conference attended by Air Chiefs representing 100 countries. We also provided interpretation services for a speech delivered by Vice President Cheney at this conference.

We were selected by World Learning and the US Institute for Peace to manage a large team of interpreters and translators in support of a Workshop on Developing Good Governance for Kosovar Parliamentarians. This conference, attended by Albanian and Serbian Municipal leaders, was designed to help newly elected and appointed municipal leaders work through the challenges to good governance in a society still recovering from ethnic conflict and political violence. This conference was established based on the success of two previous conferences with similar leaders that we also provided interpretation and translation support for.

Our interpreters have facilitated communication on cross-country technical briefings for the Boeing company’s international media tour and in hands-on (axle grease and all) Land Rover staff training courses.

Skilled Staff & Interpreters

You get the confidence of working with experts

All of our interpreters are fully trained professionals. Totally fluent in both source and target languages, they are trained to listen to a speaker carefully and quickly produce a target-language equivalent. They have the highly developed concentration and memory skills you can count on - plus the business knowledge and cultural awareness to keep your exchanges on track. We can provide interpreters in languages as rare as Twi or as common as Spanish. But in all cases, our Project Managers know that only those interpreters who match your needs will actually serve your needs.

Comprehensive Language Center, Inc. provides foreign language interpretation support for events ranging from high-level international conferences to tours by foreign visitors. To accomplish these tasks, we maintain a nationwide network of hundreds of qualified interpreters in over 70 languages. Our interpreters average 10 years of professional interpretation experience and are rigorously trained by world-renowned foreign-language interpretation institutes. A Comprehensive Language Center, Inc. project manager selects interpreters from this network based on the requirements of each assignment such as geographic location, subject matter, purpose and type of meeting.
