Simultaneous Interpreting

You may be familiar with this style of interpreting from watching conferences or large meetings at places like the UN. For simultaneous interpreting, the interpreter wears headphones and a microphone and repeats the speaker as they are talking without any hesitation or breaks.

Consecutive Interpreting

Unlike simultaneous interpreting, consecutive interpreting does not happen at the same time as the speaker. Instead, the speaker will communicate a phrase or sentence and then wait for the interpreter to translate it. This is common for small business meetings.

Whisper Interpreting

Like a private interpretation service, whisper interpreting is ideal for consultations, business meetings, court, and other instances where the receiver wishes to understand the speaker quietly and quickly. The interpreter will repeat the speaker in a soft tone to the receiver.

Phone/Online Interpreting

A perfect type of interpreting during the work-from-home era, phone or online interesting can be done remotely via a dial-in service, Skype, Teams, or other communication software. This type of interpreting could be customized depending on individual needs.

What You Can Expect From Our Service

A certified translation is an accurate word-for-word translation of a legal document performed by a qualified human translator. It includes a certified translation stamp and signature for use in legal and other circumstances. 

A certified translation shows that the translated document has been professionally translated accurately and word-for-word. However, some Thai institutions and foreign embassies require translations to also be legalized by the MFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs). A legalized translation bears the stamp of the MFA to prove it is accurate and legal. 

Academic translations specifically refer to papers, manuscripts, reports, documents, and research studies related to higher education. These document types often contain specialist language, grammar, terms, rules, and styles that need proper assessment when being translated. Often, academic papers are written in a language that is not native to the reader. For example, a Thai professor may write an academic document in their native language but require its translation to English so a wider audience can read it. Similarly, many academic papers are written in English and might feature phrases or technical terms that a native Thai person doesn’t fully understand. Academic translations make bodies of work more widely accessible and available.

When it comes to translating academic texts, a good command of the language is not enough. Translators must have the ability to understand the language and terms used in the paper and have familiarity with the subject or topic. Using a standard translation service or a freelance translator to undertake the task of translating an academic document regularly leads to errors. However, specialist translators can understand the entire research paper from the beginning and use that foundation to provide an accurate and stylish translation. As we use a native speaker of the target language to double-check all translations, you can be sure that our translations are of the highest quality.
