Onsite / Face to Face Interpretation Services in London, UK
Onsite or Face-to-face interpretation is essential to the success of many industries and services. Face-to-face interpretation is ideal for a variety of situations because it is instant and facilitates conversation between two or more languages. It is also appropriate for dealing with sensitive information, which is best delivered in person. This could be anything from a solicitor explaining a social care issue to a parent to a conversation between a police/immigration officer and a detainee.
Face To Face Interpretation service also provides much-needed context, allowing the interpreter to recognise body language and facial expressions that aid in conveying the correct message.
The most traditional and common Onsite or Face To Face Interpretation service providers are performed concurrently, with an interpreter listening to the speaker and translating their comments to the other party as they speak. This means that the on-site interpreter must be able to keep up with the speaker's pace at all times and accurately translate their comments without paraphrasing.
