What is Interpretation?
Interpreting services function as a verbal form of translation that is facilitated by a professional interpreter, or a team of interpreters. Interpretation services are used to translate speeches, presentations, conversations, and other spoken languages into the native or preferred language of a given audience.
By providing interpreting services to your audience, you can communicate across language barriers essentially in real-time, expediting the speed at which information can be delivered while allowing them to benefit from the context in which the speech is provided. Members of a presentation audience, for example, can view visual aids or slideshows as an interpreter provides insights and explanations for those slides.
At Portfolio Language Services We stand as the foremost provider of interpretation services in Canada. Our goal is to make your multi-lingual event as seamless as possible.
An Interpretation Company that Meets Every Need
The main difference between translation and interpretation is that translation involves written content, while interpretation involves verbal communication. Translation uses computer aided translation tools and takes place over a period of time. Interpretation uses a different set of equipment, and it happens in real time usually over a short period of time.
Use a professional translation and interpreting service when you need high-quality or quick turnarounds on translations or interpreting services. A language service provider should have the language resources to accommodate your needs and provide a high-quality result.
Simultaneous interpreting is when a speaker speaks without pausing, and an interpreter translates the content at the same time. With consecutive interpreting, the speaker takes short breaks after speaking to give the interpreter time to translate the content.
We Provide the following Type of Interpreting Services
Simultaneous interpretation is generally used for large conferences and meetings, or in situations where two or more languages are required and the audience has mixed language requirements. Sometimes called UN-style interpretation, interpreters are isolated in booths and listen to the speaker through a headset. They speak the translation into a microphone, which is wirelessly transmitted to headsets worn by audience members.
Not every interpreter is capable of performing simultaneous conference interpretation—delivering this service requires highly trained and experienced interpreters as well as specialized equipment, which we can deliver. We also have the technology to support either on-site or remote simultaneous interpretation Read more..

Consecutive interpretation is commonly used in one-on-one or small group settings to help facilitate interactions between people in two or more languages. One party speaks and pauses while the interpreter speaks, waits for a response, and then interprets the response back to the original speaker. We also have the technology to provide consecutive interpretation remotely when in-person interactions aren’t possible. Our interpreters are experts in conveying meaning in an efficient and professional way Read more..
