What is interpreting?
To coin a straightforward definition, we can say it’s a service of oral translation, executed usually during large events and business meetings when at least one of the participants doesn’t speak the same language (what’s important, interpreting refers to both spoken and signed languages).
Interpreting services come in handy during such occasions as:
- International events and conferences
- Business meetings
- Business trips
- Phone calls with foreign business partners and many other situations when you need to discuss current issues
- Interest groups discussions and book reviews
Are you planning on organising a conference or a meeting for people from different countries? See how we can help you with our language services! After all, interpreting is, next to translations, the most important part of the Skrivanek’s offer.
Forms of interpreting
There are two basic forms of interpreting:
- Simultaneous interpreting: Here, the interpreter translates while the speaker is talking. Simultaneous interpreting is frequently used during large international events when there is a need to translate what’s being said into more than one foreign language. In this form of interpreting, interpreters are located in soundproof booths to hear just the speaker (who speaks to the microphone).
- Consecutive interpreting: In this form of interpretation, the speaker takes pauses every three or four sentences, thus enabling the interpreter to translate what was just said piece by piece.

FULL SUPPORT FOR INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES
Skrivanek is a company with extensive expertise in both consecutive and simultaneous interpreting. With our professional interpreting of business talks, meetings and negotiations both at home and abroad, you can always count on the highest quality of business communication. Building on our experience and the merger with the conference interpreting company (GRS Konferencje sp. z o.o.), we are able to handle interpreting projects in accordance with high-end European standards.

Interpreting comes in handy when you’re organising online events and business meetings via video communication or online collaboration tools. In such a situation, the interpreter has access to the meeting room or channel and interprets conversations between participants (typically, it’s in the form of a simultaneous interpretation). Thanks to the nature of online meetings, we can offer live captions and support for sign language users.
Thanks to online interpreting, every participant of your online meetings and events can talk and follow the conversation in the language they speak and understand.
Here in Skrivanek, we often organize not just online meetings or face-to-face conferences, but mixed solutions – where part of the listeners are taking part in online events, and some sit in other parts of the world, same applies to the speakers and interpreters.
Who uses interpreting?
Interpreting, in its various modes, is frequently used by companies and organisations operating in the international environment. It’s very popular in European Union, and its branches, e.g., European Commission and European Parliament, as people working there speak many different languages.
Court interpreting is also a frequent situation, e.g., when there is a witness or expert who must be questioned in a different language.
What’s important in interpreting?
Interpreters need to know both the source and the target language perfectly, but they also need additional skills enabling them to think and talk quickly and clearly. If possible, the interpreter should also have a deep understanding of the topic (that’s crucial in such sectors as IT, high-tech, legal, healthcare and others), as well as a background in psychology and sociology. In fact, all aspects of interpreting require focus and constant attention to what’s going on during ongoing discussions or lectures.
Our interpreters work all over the world, wherever you require our services. We understand that international companies can require support in different countries, time zones and settings and that interpreters always play a vital role in international business. That’s why we are always prepared to support you in the way you need.
Thanks to our extensive network of branch offices across Poland and abroad, we are able to provide interpreting services anytime and anywhere it may be required. Our qualified interpreter(s) will arrive at the location of your choice and ensure that the interpreting service you receive fully satisfies your needs.
