We provide high quality interpretation services for clients working in or traveling to China.
TYPES OF INTERPRETING
At Frieske & Spark we offer three basic interpretation options, depending on whether you need a conference interpreter, a person to assist during business negotiations, or a travel guide in China.
Interpreting starts each time the client finishes a phrase (usually consisting of one to two sentences). The interpreter may choose to take notes in the process. Nowadays, it is the most popular type of interpretation.
SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETing (CABIN)
Interpretation takes place in a soundproof booth and is carried out by a team of at least two interpreters (since this type of interpretation is the most demanding, interpreters should rotate every 30 minutes). The interpreter hears the words of the speaker through headphones and almost simultaneously restates them in the target language.
If you need help with basic communication, or someone to pick you up from the airport, organize a tour of the city, or help run an exhibition stand, this may be the best choice for you. Please contact us today to learn more about the prices and details.
WHAT TYPE OF EVENT?
INTERPRETATION AT CONFERENCES
Interpretation at conferences can be either consecutive or simultaneous. We provide professional linguistic assistance during business, press and academic conferences, including those covered by the media. Our interpreters have clear pronunciation and polite demeanor, which allow them to represent you in a highly professional manner in front of a large audience, as well as during meetings with the media.
