Interpreting is defined as the verbal translation of speech from one language to another. It can be simultaneous or consecutive. We work only with specialists with at least several years of experience in the field at a level that satisfied international requirements. Selected interpreters also hold a Security Eligibility Certificate pursuant to Act No. 412/2005, providing clearance for contact with classified information.
This type of work usually involves interpreting speakers at conferences who are speaking in their native language or approved session languages. Interpreters in interpreting booths translate simultaneously into earphones worn by participants into their preferred language. Two interpreters work side by side in each booth.
Upon request, we also arrange interpreting equipment.
Another version of simultaneous interpreting is whispered interpreting (chuchotage) where the interpreter whispers directly to a small group of people without the need to use any equipment.
This service is usually billed by the half-day, and the price ranges from 4000 to 7000 CZK excluding VAT per interpreter, depending on language combination(s).
In consecutive interpreting, the speaker says a certain amount of text, stops, and gives the interpreter time to translate into the target language. This is usually used during business meetings, dinners, in court, at government bureaus, etc. Court of official interpreting may only be performed by an interpreter authorised by a regional court who has a round stamp and performs certified interpreting with a court endorsement.
Consecutive interpreting is usually billed by the hour and ranges from 900 to 1800 CZK depending on language combination(s).
