Interpreters & Translators

Interpreters and Translators Understand Your Business—in Any Language
When your business takes you to trade shows, conventions, or meetings overseas—or when your international clients and prospects visit you on your home turf—it makes sense to engage the services of a professional interpreter or translator who can bridge the language and communication gaps.
Stacey Lee Agency’s interpreters and translators are available in major cities across the world for convention and trade show services, VIP welcome services, business meetings, conferences, tours, as well as for airport and other visit transfers.
Simultaneous, Consecutive, Escort Interpreter? Translator? What’s the Difference?
The interpretation method used most often for large conferences and meetings is called simultaneous interpretation, which requires that the linguist translate what the speaker is saying, as he or she speaks. The interpreter both listens and speaks at the same time, an act that requires intense concentration. Because the task is so demanding, simultaneous interpreters often work in teams so they can take frequent breaks.
Request a consecutive interpreter for more intimate settings. In consecutive interpretation, the speaker speaks for a few minutes and then pauses. The interpreter takes notes and translates the message during the pause. Consecutive interpreting requires that the interpreter capture a host of ideas and subtle nuances and then immediately translate them into another language without losing meaning, without pause.
Escort interpretation is called for in casual and informal settings, often when hosting a delegation of visitors from another land. Request an escort interpreter when you’re meeting clients at the airport, accompanying clients on city tours, and for similar excursions.
While interpreters help you perform vital face-to-face communications, translators translate your sales and marketing materials so international guests can view them after the meeting is over—at their leisure. Stacey Lee Agency’s translators will translate your web site, software, proposal, and other sales and marketing materials in a way that retains your message and your focus on your target market.
