Interpreting requires a number of unique skills. A good interpreter must have extensive knowledge of the source and target language, and the ability to express thoughts clearly and concisely in both. They also need sound knowledge of the subject matter to be interpreted.
At LTA LLC we have some of the best interpreters available, experienced in both simultaneous and consecutive interpreting.
A simultaneous interpreter usually sits in a sound proof booth and translates as the speaker is talking – common in large events and conferences. For smaller events and group situations, consecutive interpreting is more appropriate – here, the interpreter takes notes and talks after the source language speaker has finished a ‘paragraph’ or thought.
