Interpreting with Skype or Google +Hangouts
When you want to promote your products or services you may need the services of an interpreter available whatever the distance may be. I can provide you with this videoconference interpreting service through Skype.
Videoconference Interpreting Service – How does it work?
You can contact me to agree on the time and language combination you may need (I also work with other colleagues for other languages than French/English), as well as providing information regarding the subject matter of the conversation and any other specific information.
At the fixed time, you will call me on Skype, and once all the people concerned are present the interpretation session will begin. The process is exactly the same as that of consecutive interpreting – the interpreter translates the fragments of a conversation in a consecutive manner and enables communication between people who do not share a common language. This technique of interpreting is widely used in interviews, discussions of agreements, and in any other business transactions.
Is It Necessary to use a Specific Conference Equipment?
No, interpreting takes places via your Skype account and the most ordinary land phone or mobile phone.
We undertake to keep any conversation confidential and we may sign a non-disclosure and/or confidential agreement to ensure that your information and conversations will not be disclosed to any third unauthorised party.
Can Several People Participate in the Conversation?
The main advantage of this system is that an unlimited number of people can join the conference. However, in such case it is important to keep in mind that there is only one interpreter and he can only translate the speech of one person at a time.
Are There Any Limitations to the Duration of the Conversation?
The conversation should last for an average of one hour and a half, however should the conversation exceed this duration, a 15 minutes break would be needed and the total length of a session should not last more than 3 hours. Should you need an extended service exceeding 3 hours, another interpreter would be needed.
How much does it cost?
The costs directly depend on the language combination for the interpreting as well as on speech complexity. Feel free to contact us for a free quotation. However the costs are definitely much cheaper than hiring an interpreter on the spot as no travelling expenses are involved.
