Translation or Interpreting?
There is a difference between translation and interpreting and not all linguists provide both services.
Translation is the written transfer of text from one language into another language. Many translators are using one or more software programmes to support the translation process and to deliver the highest quality product to you.
Interpreting, on the other hand, is the oral transfer of speech from one language into another language. This can be done with technical equipment (microphones for the interpreters and headphones for the audience) in conference settings or by taking notes and from memory in more private settings.
Both interpreting and translation require extensive training, excellent command of the languages used and continuous professional development.
My translation service includes translating texts from English, French and Russian into German. I do specialise in medical, IT and marketing translations and provide overnight translation services for customers based in European time zones.
The English ↔ German interpreting service is available throughout New Zealand – both locally and remotely. Interpreting for business settings as well as private meetings or public occasions can be provided.
