Conference interpretation is the act of conveying a message, which has originally been spoken in one language, in one or more other languages, through a team of conference interpreters.
Diplomatic interpreting is carried out in a variety of situations, including official visits, press conferences, formal or informal interviews, working lunches or gala dinners, after-dinner speeches and working meetings.
Executive interpreting is the term used when a highly qualified interpreter is assigned to shadow a political or business leader during a visit. Executive interpretation ensures that leaders have access to high-quality interpretation at all times and at all meetings and events – both formal and informal.
Clearly, the ideal scenario is to have your interpreters in the meeting room with your delegates. However, if space constraints require the interpretation booths to be removed, remote interpreting can be a practical solution.
Poor sound quality has a negative impact on interpreting as it affects both the interpreters and the audience. Calliope identifies equipment solutions to meet the technical requirements of any type of event and venue.
Interpretation Project Management for Events
Events take planning, and so do interpretation services. Calliope can help you to finalise the interpretation requirements for your event, whatever its scale, in order to deliver a tailor-made solution and the best possible value for money.
Sign Language Interpretation Services at Conferences
Offering sign language interpretation at your event makes it accessible to participants who use a sign language as their mode of communication. At such events, the sign language interpreters work between a spoken language and a sign language for the benefit of two distinct audiences: those who sign and those who use a spoken language. This enables all participants to communicate.
