In addition to providing translation services of written documents, CF Professional is also proud to facilitate face-to-face verbal communication between English and non-English speakers. We offer simultaneous, consecutive and escort interpreting services.

Simultaneous Interpreting

This form of interpreting, is mostly used for large conferences or meetings, and requires  the linguist to "verbally translate" what the speaker is saying while he/she speaks. In other words, the interpreter is both listening and speaking at the same time (simultaneously).  Simultaneous interpreting requires intense concentration, and therefore may involve 2 interpreters working as a team, and alternating every 20 to 30 minutes.

Consecutive Interpreting

Consecutive interpreting is the most widely used type of on-site interpreting process and is most appropriate in smaller settings, such as training workshops, meetings, negotiations, doctor’s appointments, court hearings or appearances, depositions and technical seminars. During consecutive interpreting, the speaker speaks for a few minutes, then pauses for one to five minutes, usually at the end of a complete thought, allowing the interpreter to take notes and then to orally convey the speaker's message during the pause. The key element in consecutive interpreting is note taking: the interpreter must record ideas and then translate them back into the words of another language without pause.

Escort Interpreting

Escort interpreting is considered a form of consecutive interpreting. The service of an escort interpreter is usually solicited when organizing tours or excursions, when hosting a delegation of visitors from another country. 

Court Interpreting

The Court Interpreter plays a vital role in the administration of justice. Court interpreting is the impartial oral translation of documents, testimony, rulings of the court and arguments of attorneys, by a qualified neutral interpreter, so that the court or the jury is able to determine the facts of the case. It is a fundamental right for anyone who does not speak the English language to request a competent interpreter for a court appearance.

Any mistake in the communication process can result in the wrong outcome of the case, and can also have serious impact on the life of the party or parties involved. For example, an error in communication can result in the wrongful sentencing or acquittal in a criminal trial. For these reasons, it is critical for the court interpreter to be experienced, reliable, professional and most importantly court certified, in the language(s) certified by the Administrative Office of the Courts. The court interpreter must also have a good knowledge and understanding of formal and informal language (slang, conversational language), in addition to understanding the legal terminology in both languages.
