Interpreting Services

What does it mean to need interpreting services? Interpreting interprets the message from one language to another whether spoken, signed, or communicated tactically.

The goal of the interpreter is to convey meaning, not merely words. For example, an English speaker might speak in a “friendly” tone while speaking with their boss; however, that same person’s tone could be perceived as very rude when talking directly to someone they do not know well or like at all. The interpreter must consider the message as a whole and convey its essence while reflecting it accurately using different tones depending on who said them in order to make sure everyone understands each other properly during communication events such as business meetings between companies from two countries.

cIT interpreters

Cal Interpreting & Translations (CIT) certified interpreters cover over 200 languages. Here at CIT, we recognize that in today’s multicultural world, language barriers have many implications, and only experienced and certified interpreters appreciate the cultural context of the words they translate. 

Interpreting's Two Primary Forms

consecutive
Simultaneous

Simultaneous interpreting was developed by Edward Filene in 1925 with telephone communication in mind.

It's evolved to a point where it is now performed in the following manner. While the speaker relates their ideas, an interpreter sits in a soundproof booth and relays the interpreted message. They use a microphone to transmit the linguist’s interpretation to the audience’s headsets. The interpreter listens to the speaker, processes the words, and relays them concurrently. This manner of interpreting often takes place in larger settings then consecutive interpreting. Examples are: 

  • Conference events
  • Diplomatic conferences
  • Exhibitions
  • Trade shows

Interpreters usually prepare prior to the event by reviewing the material. Despite this, the process can still prove extremely challenging. This method is best used for live events, as everything happens in real-time.

There are many different types of settings where an interpreting service may be needed including depositions, conferences, public meetings, conventions and lectures to name just a few. The most common situation that you will see them in is when someone does not speak your language for business reasons or because there was no time available beforehand to prepare translations before hand; however they also work with live television broadcasts which involve simultaneous translation done while talking over video footage or closed captioning such as during press briefings so audiences can follow along more easily.

CIT Meets Your California Trial Requirements For Deaf or Hearing Impaired Person Intepreting

The need for an interpreter can be seen in any civil or criminal action, including traffic tickets. It may also occur when a juvenile court proceeding is being held and other alternatives to incarceration such as mediation are being used by police officers instead of jail time with rehabilitative programs like educational classes on parenting skills; all without the use of English so that communication isn’t limited just because one party doesn’t speak it fluently.

Under Cal. Evid. Code § 754, an interpreter must be appointed if a present and participating party or witness is unable to communicate fluently in the English language due to hearing impairment or linguistic limitations that affect speech comprehension; this does not include people who are able-bodied but wish their lawyer had assistance during questioning for personal preference reasons only – they can still choose whether or not want them!

We provide translation services for legal proceedings, so you can focus on more important matters.

We want to make sure that all parties involved in court cases have access and understanding of what is happening around them without worrying about language barriers or miscommunications because our team will take care of everything from start to finish!

The requirement of an interpreter applies in (a) any civil or criminal action, including an action involving traffic or other infraction, a juvenile court proceeding, a small claims court proceeding, a family court proceeding or service, or a proceeding to determine mental competency; (b) a court-ordered or court-provided alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration; and (c) an administrative hearing.

Under Cal. Evid. Code  § 754(d), an “interpreter” includes an “oral interpreter, a sign language interpreter, or a deaf-blind interpreter, depending upon the needs of the individual who is deaf or hearing impaired.” Pursuant to Cal. Evid. Code § 755(f), the interpreter must be “qualified”, as in “certified as competent to interpret court proceedings by a testing organization, agency, or educational institution approved by the Judicial Council as qualified to administer tests to court interpreters for individuals who are deaf or hearing-impaired.”

To Our California Interpreting Clients: CIT Employees Certified CAL. EVID. CODE § 754 Translators

There are approximately 10,000,000 (ten million) people who have hearing loss in the United States, and it’s estimated that about 1,000,000 (one million) of them are considered functionally deaf. As a result, The 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act requires businesses to accommodate these disabilities by making reasonable accommodations for normal day-to-day communication needs such as providing sign language or captioning during remote video meetings so those participating can communicate more easily.

The ability to reserve a certified sign-language interpreter is of paramount importance. Our professional courteous and experienced interpreters are the logical choices in facilitating communications between the hearing enabled, people who are deaf or hard-of hear, they can also help those that have limited speech due to medical conditions like paralysis caused by stroke
or ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).
