Business Interpretation Services
Doing business in a global economy requires communication with people speaking different languages, whether they are your business partners, investors, suppliers, clients, or product / service users.
The requirement for business interpretation services is not only limited to international business relationships. Ontario being home to a multi-culturally diverse population, you will often find yourself dealing with members of the many ethnic communities, some of whom may not necessarily be fluent in English.
Our interpreters can help you communicate with non-English speaking parties at the following occasions:
- Visits from foreign business or conference delegations
- Business conferences
- Meetings with clients or business partners
- Presentations and product demonstrations
- Seminars and workshops
- Contract negotiations (also see Legal)
- Press conferences and media interviews
- Trade shows
- Public speeches
- In-home consultations or site visits
- Video conferencing
- Phone / net conferencing
Unlike written copy that can be translated beforehand, interpretation for business consultation deals with on-the-spot conversations. An untrained lay person can easily run into difficulty coming up with the correct equivalent of a technical term, or mistakenly use expressions that may sound similar in meaning but carries a different connotation from what you intend. Moreover, long pauses trying to process the information, missed points, lack of sensitivity to the other party's culture, or personal bias, not to say inaccuracies, will end up costing you much more than the fees of a professional interpreter.
In business, an image of professionalism is crucial. Do not risk asking your employee to be your interpreter just because he/she speaks the language. When you are negotiating with a business partner, or making a sales pitch to a client, or conducting a workshop for an ethnic audience, hiring a professional interpreter sends the message that you are serious about doing business with the other party, that you are concerned about accurate representation of company information, and that discussions can be honest and open knowing that the interpreter will respect rules on impartiality and confidentiality.
Our pool of interpreters covers a wide range of industry experience. State the specialization area you require and we will arrange for an interpreter who is familiar with the terminology specific to that industry.
