Interpretation Services

Consecutive interpretation is commonly used in one-on-one or small group settings and Compass Translation is able to provide this service in over 50 languages. Our interpreters possess exceptional linguistic and interpersonal skills to help facilitate interactions between two (and sometimes more) different languages. They are fully trained in the skills involved in consecutive interpreting where the speaker will generally stop every 1–5 minutes (usually at the end of every complete thought) and our interpreter then steps in to render what was said in the source language into the target language.

Examples Of Events Supported By Our Consecutive Interpretation Service Include

  • Business meetings with overseas partners
  • Internal presentations for global teams
  • Conference and one to one / escort interpretation
  • Group discussions and training courses
  • Medical and Legal appointments

How our service works

Our telephone interpreting service couldn’t be easier. Setting up an account is quick, easy and free. Once you have provided your details we will provide you with an account number. There are no subscription charges so if you don’t use the service – you don’t pay.

When you need an interpreter, you call our dedicated number and will be be asked for your account number. Tell us the language needed and any preference you have (such as a male or female). We will put you on hold for around a short while and connect you to your interpreter.
That’s it!

Telephone interpreting – checklist and tips

  • Find out your contact’s language and dialect.
  • Brief the interpreter before you speak to your contact.
  • Speak directly to your contact and not the interpreter.
