ENLASO provides interpreting support for many language combinations. After carefully analyzing your needs, we select professional interpreters to meet the required specifications. All interpreters are native speakers and certified in their field of interpretation.
We offer simultaneous and consecutive interpreting solutions for international business and government negotiations, meetings, technical discussions, conferences, seminars, onsite work and other events.
When requesting an interpreter, you will require either a simultaneous or consecutive interpreter. Both use unique language communication skill sets that should be recognized and understood before initiating any multilingual interaction.
Over-the-phone Interpretation (OPI)
In addition to consecutive and simultaneous interpretation, ENLASO is proud to offer over the phone voice interpretation. Airports, regulatory affairs, hospitals and call centers appreciate ENLASO’s ability to provide fast connections to interpreters in over 100 languages. While handling high call volumes of over 6500 calls per day, customers can be connected to a Spanish interpreter in less than ten seconds. For more unusual languages, customers can be connected to an interpreter in 30 seconds on average. In addition, customers welcome the option to have their own 800 number to ensure direct contact to an interpreter. And, with most interpreters based in the United States or Canada, time zone conflicts are no longer an obstacle to doing business worldwide.
Consecutive interpretation requires that the interpreter serves as a connection between two speakers. When the speaker pauses or finishes, the interpreter renders the speech in the first person, in the target language. Speech and interpretation generally occur in segments from a couple sentences up to 15 minutes in length, based on the type of content. Used for court hearings, legal depositions, business meetings, negotiations, medical appointments, tours, informal meetings and social occasions, consecutive interpretation has become an affordable and readily available language resource.
In simultaneous interpretation, the speaker’s words are interpreted at the same time he or she is speaking. As an example, simultaneous interpretation is best demonstrated in the joint sessions of the United Nations where international leaders use earpieces that simultaneously feed interpretations. The real time interpretation is fed from an interpreter in another room. This form of interpretation can be more difficult, as the interpreter can fatigue due to the required levels of concentration and communication. Depending on budgets, it is recommended that at least two interpreters share any simultaneous interpretation assignment. In regards to the “hidden” audio requirements of simultaneous interpretation: the audio equipment, service providers generally defer the audio engineering and production to either the client or outsource to a partnering company. Simultaneous interpretation is more expensive; however, it facilitates a more effective flow of the speaker's presentation with half the required speaking time.
