Legal Interpreting Services for All Your Needs

Do you need legal interpreting services for just a few people? Or for a few thousand?

Legal Language offers telephonic, consecutive and simultaneous interpreting for meetings of all sizes and contexts.

Telephonic interpreting allows you to talk to a speaker of another language by telephone. Two specialized solutions from Legal Language are also available — Phone Assist and Schedule Assist.

Since the telephonic interpreter cannot see the people speaking, consecutive and simultaneous interpreting services are preferred for most events. However, telephonic interpreting can be useful in a last-minute or emergency situation.

Consecutive interpreting can be used in formal or informal settings and is ideal for small groups. In consecutive interpreting, one person speaks, say in Spanish. The interpreter renders this into a second language, for example, English. The second speaker responds in English, and the interpreter renders the response into Spanish.

Simultaneous interpreting is often used with large groups in more formal settings. The interpreter renders the speaker’s language into another language in real time. This usually requires sophisticated audiovisual equipment, including wireless headphones, microphones and soundproof booths.
